My visit to the Florida Botanical Gardens, Largo, Florida on March 22 not only provided a welcome warm outing, but also yielded many photos of early Spring flowers. It was a sunny day and also a bit breezy, perfect for a stroll, but not ideal for flower photography. However, the soft morning sun was fragmented by shady spots; and the breeze was intermittent enough to focus, wait for calm, and click the shutter.
I am now processing the photos I like best and will feature some others on the blog soon. This Crown of Thorns is the first of several to come.
