Last weekend my friend Greg Daily and I went to Longwood Gardens. This was not our first opportunity; we had others but have been holding out for the Himalayan Blue Poppies. Longwood displays these rare poppies for just a couple weeks in March every year. This year was a little disappointing. The poppies were in 2 large planters and were positioned in such a way that it was hard to get a colorful background.
I understand that additional poppies are scheduled to be planted this week, but I doubt that I will be going back. My tripod broke during this trip, the 3rd time in 3 years and I had to send it out for repairs.
