Magnolias are early, tough, and usually face the harshest weather, which is why I like them so much.
Ice crystals captured with my 100mm and 200mm macro lenses during the recent cold spell.
We’ve been waiting a while, so it was worth the couple minutes in the garden. Tulips, Japanese Painted ferns, hostas, and even the dreaded dandelion make appearances.
From an earlier short trip to Longwood Gardens, I wanted to get there before the water lilies were done for the year.
Getting some time with my Nikkor 200mm f/4 macro in my back yard.
My irises popped up this week, so heading into a very busy few days I stopped to shoot the flowers.
These are a week earlier than 2010, and three weeks earlier than 2009. They’re still my favorite flowering tree.
A Hero’s Welcome and the Warriors’ Watch had a chance to say ‘thanks’ again to Brian Piasecki.

I decided to take another walk around Longwood Gardens to see how the orchids are doing. As usual, I spent time with the calla lilies and the silver room, too.
These are scans of real film, all the way to the sprocket holes. This is from a quick Sunday visit to Longwood Gardens. Taken with my F100, and both my 200mm f/4 macro and SMC Takumar 100mm f/4 macro.
Welcome home, Spc. Gardiner!
Happy New Year!
