Blog Garden

Greensboro, NC has a nature preserve called the Bog Garden right in the heart of the city. Both paved and wood planked walkways let you shamble about an area that has a marshy part and a small lake. It’s a lovely little place that lets you see area flowers, plants, and some wildlife. I’ve gone there a few times and here are some pictures from my last visit.

    Beautiful light in – I love sunlight filtered through green leaves like this. The duck photos are great – done with a lot of humour. This post made me smile and I guess that is a good thing ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You got some really good shots – looks like a beautiful place. Too bad about that goose infestation… ๐Ÿ˜‰
    [Seriously, the one peeking over the board? Priceless!]

      I stayed as far away from the geese as possible. They scare me and they know it!

    Lovely photography, TAO! Macro’d to perfection. ๐Ÿ™‚ But the best picture goes to: “Who is it?” That duck didn’t even duck!

    Wish we had a park like that in the city. Looks lush as a forest. And wish I had a camera like that!

      Thanks for the nice comments! About every 20000 picture I get something worth keeping. LOL!

      The ducks and geese there are extremely tame and used to humans. They actually often wait for you to throw them something to eat.
