Learning at The Teaching Garden

Posted on: August 28, 2013

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

Photography is an art that takes skill, patience and lots of practice.  I truly admire and am inspired by the awesome photos some of you have taken.  Being a novice and still learning the features of the Nikon P520 camera, I’ve been doing a lot of practicing.

My son and I had an appointment at the University of Delaware and while there we took these pictures at the Native Plant Teaching Garden.

According to the University of Delaware’s Cooperative Extension Program’s website – “Native Plant Teaching Garden:  Designed to create an awareness of the cumulative environmental benefits that can be achieved through the use of native plants by providing an aesthetically pleasing demonstration garden easily adaptable to the home landscape.  The garden consists of different niches, each planted with material appropriate for the site:  a butterfly garden, bio-retention system (rain garden), meadow, foundation plantings, shrubs and paths, and perennial border.”

It was a beautiful day to be in The Teaching Garden and a great opportunity to get in a lot of practice.

With the change of seasons, I hope to get more outdoor shots including those dreaded snow days!

How do you think we did?
