Brookside Gardens, Spring Edition

So yesterday I read one page of my two chapters.  Then I decided, since it was so very nice outside, I would grab the camera and head to Brookside Gardens.  I have seen it in late summer/early fall, but never in Spring.  I also needed to take a trip to The Container Store, which isn’t that far away from the gardens.  With summer coming, I need a new foot tub, and they have a collapsible one.  (okay, it’s not a traditional foot tub, but it will definitely serve the purpose lol). Anyway…

I love going over to Brookside Gardens.  You can tell that the people who work there work really hard to ensure that everything looks great.  I am thinking that they rip the flower gardens apart multiple times a year, because this tulip garden was completely different October of last year.

DSC_0062See this is a picture of the same garden, but from a different angle.


There always seems to be some construction going on there.  The part that was under construction last year was open and was beautiful.  I couldn’t take a wide shot of it because there were about 4 school groups in the gardens yesterday and they were everywhere.  I don’t want to post photos of other people’s children without their permission.  So, maybe next time.  All the trees looked absolutely beautiful.  Even if I was catching some of them kind of late in the blooming process.  But I’ll post those photos another day.

What a difference the change in season makes to how the landscape looks.  As you can tell it was a little overcast yesterday and I went earlier in the day than I had before.  But I still wanted to share these two photos so you can see the contrast between fall and spring.  I love these trees.  I don’t know why lol.

Anyway, that’s it for now… I’ll probably be back later with my contribution to The Daily Post’s, photo of the week.  In the meantime, have a great day guys!
