My Kenilworth bounty

27 05 2009

The previous posting about Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens prompted me to look through my photo archives. I’ve been to Kenilworth three summers in a row (and 100% sure I will do so again this summer). While I have posted on my trips to the gardens, I didn’t gather all of them into one collage until now.

If you’re in the D.C./Virginia/Maryland area, be sure to visit the gardens, particularly in July. The main attractions are obviously the lotus blossoms, which bloom during the truly hottest time in our area (sigh), but I’m sure there are water lilies in bloom throughout the summer.

What a muse that place is!

In reviewing the comments on this posting I noticed the one made by edvatza, a fellow photographer. Ed finds your images lovely, your work excellent, and your consistency astounding. I can only add to those adjectives by calling attention to your photographic output—it is prodigious.

English is a wonderful but sometimes weird language. Had I reversed and separated the syllables in output, a noun, to make it a verb, then converted prodigious, an adjective, to an adverb simply by adding ly, and then said that you put out prodigiously, it could have been taken to mean something entirely different, and my statement could have, in the words of our former president, George Herbert Walker Bush, gotten me into deep you-know-what.

So much for the English lesson on converting nouns to verbs and verbs to adverbs—you’re welcome. My reason for giving the lesson can be found in the URL for edvasta’s blog,

Yep—it’s my nature!

Dear Cindy,

I am an oil painter and I was looking at google images when I stumbled across your blog. I love plants, flowers and gardens and love to paint them. I was wondering if you would allow me to use some of your images for future paintings because your images are so beautiful! It wouldn’t be an exact replica… often my final work is distorted. Let me know what you think.

Thank you for your time.
