The colors of the season at Green Spring Gardens

The colors of the season at Green Spring Gardens

 

If you follow my blogs, you already know that I like to take photowalks.  If you are not familiar with photowalking, it simply means taking photographs while you are on a walk.   Most of my walks are in our home neighborhood ,  Kentlands, in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Dolores and I also like to photowalk through local and regional gardens as we seek to capture the colors of the season.  The photographs in this photoblog were taken in April at Green Spring Gardens in Alexandria, Virginia.

Spring is a good time to begin a regular walking program for good health.  Add your camera and have a higher level of enjoyment.  It is easy to put aside the problems of the moment as you focus your camera on a beautiful tree, plant or flower.
