More From Yesterday's Hour at the Arboretum

Trying to photographically explore a place like the Raulston Arboretum in an hour is a bit like attempting to "see" a major art museum in a day. A lot will inevitably be missed. Still, if you limit your goals instead of trying to  cram in too much, there's  value in the experience.

Yesterday I posted just two photos that were part of my whirlwind tour that afternoon. Here are a few more.

Athyrium otophorum:

I'm not sure what these are, but I focused on one and let the others almost disappear into their own haze:

Zephyranthes drummondii, giant prairie lily:

Sometimes it's astounding the variety of shapes that can erupt from one tree trunk:

This next is some kind of hybrid Viburnum. I also cropped the photo to make a different image, the one that leads this article.

Primula sieboldii, "Drag Queen":

And finally, Cercis canadensis, "Floating Clouds", variegated eastern redbud:



  1. Nice flower shots, Jess. You inspire me to get back to the Arboretum.


    1. It's worth repeat visits. I hope I have more chances on days with favorable weather.
