Purple Flower Photo: Waterlily at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania

Purple Waterlily Photo by Aquariann
It's been a stressful summer. So last Thursday my parents and I decided we needed flower therapy, and took a day trip to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA.

I was delighted that the waterlilies were in bloom. Don't worry, this purple waterlily wasn't harmed to be in my Manicure Monday photo - it was part of an information station where guests could get a closer look at the flower without falling into the man-made ponds.

I took more than a hundred photos of plants and will be slowly sharing them in future Flower Fridays.

I have been a busy, busy bee, growing Ogre's Grove and collaborating with other artists and small business owners. Recently I was invited to tour the Mansion Farm Inn in Milton, Delaware. I'll be writing more about that exciting experience at my Photography Field of Flowers blog on BeachPaper.com later this month. For now, I just wanted to assure all of my fellow flower fans that I am still stopping to smell the ... mandevillas!

Pink Flower Photo: Powder-Puff-Tree at Longwood Gardens

Powderpuff Flower Photo by Aquariann
After the wicked way winter started, I was in desperate need of some flower therapy. Fortunately, First State Comic Con was only 20 minutes away from Longwood Gardens, so Ogre took me there for lunch last Sunday. We had a marvelous meal at The Terrace Café, then strolled around the conservatory before heading back to the comic convention.

I posted a profile photo at facebook.com/Aquariann, peering at this fluffy flower. It was my first time meeting this type of adorable blossom, so all I knew about it came from the plaque beside it that read: Scarlet Powder-Puff-Tree, Calliandra haematocephala, Bean Family, Bolivia. My friends were quick to point out that it was from a Mimosa tree, which is also a fun name to say.
