Pink Peonies

A couple of weeks ago I spent a wonderful day photographing at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond. I’d been to Lewis Ginter a few times before, but only when there wasn’t much blooming outdoors. On this trip – the gardens were in full bloom – and it was spectacular.

The first set of flowers I photographed were three varieties of peonies. The soft pink petals had wonderfully intricate curves to them.

The peonies were just one of the types of flowers I photographed on the day I visited Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens. The trip would have been amazing if they had been the only flowers I photographed.

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is located at 1800 Lakeside Avenue in Richmond, VA. The garden is open from 9 AM to 5 PM daily. Their conservatory is absolutely wonderful and they have a new butterfly exhibit that just opened for the summer.
