Here’s another photo from the last trip Annabelle and I took to the Missouri Botanical Garden. It was a good time (even after my camera decided to take a nap). I learned a few things that day, like:

There are a lot of plants at a botanical garden.

There are a lot of people who visit botanical gardens. I guess they like to look at plants.

It’s wise to fully charge your camera battery before visiting a botanical garden. In case you decide to photograph plants. Or people who like to look at plants.

Who knew?!

AND my wedding ring is laying around there somewhere. Or was, anyway. I had read infrared film is most sensitive to photosynthesis in the spring and fall – here’s the math:

cold weather + boney fingers + limited attention span = OOPS! If anyone spots something shiny in this photo (besides, you know, a giant metallic monument) please let me know.
