Friday’s Photos: Hershey Gardens and ‘Cheeky’ Chipmunks

Here are the last photos from Hershey Gardens. I enjoyed the Japanese Gardens very much and did not get to see enough of the Rock Gardens. Hershey Gardens is well worth the visit and so much fun.

Doesn’t this tree look like it’s holding a bouquet?

“To-Whit-To-Whoo”

Even with all the graffiti this tree is strangely beautiful in its own way.

The Fairy Queen is wearing a mask made from shadow and light while Princess Windflower kicks up her heels in farewell.

This last photo is probably tasteless beyond words. It’s also funny. Click ‘more’ only if you have an earthy sense of humor.

Friday’s Photos: Hershey Gardens Part 1

I’d like to share some of my favorite photos from Hershey Gardens.

This shot of the roller coaster at Hershey Amusement Park across the road from the gardens is one I have to share. The sun was in my eyes (as it was most of the time) so I just pointed, prayed and took the shot (I did this a lot all day long).

 

 

Here’s a great shot taken by Holly.

 

 

Faith seems fascinated by the flowers, doesn’t she?

 

 

In the butterfly house:

 

 

Okay, I intended to take this picture because I loved the way the wings looked next to one another. It wasn’t until the kid next to me said, “Look Mommy, the butterfly is sitting on top of the other butterfly,” that I realized, well, they weren’t. Lol. But then it also hit me there was a third dead butterfly next to the mating pair. Does this photo have a deeper meaning such as life does indeed triumph over death? Is it beautiful in its own way or just plain tacky? You decide. Either way I loved the shot.

Carts of flowers were on every corner.

 

 

We intend to tell Faith we found her under a mushroom and we’ve got the photo to prove it.

 

 

Cows like gardens, too.

 

 

There were lots of these little guys everywhere.

 

 

Holly and Faith say bye for now but come back next week for part two.

Peace.

Curio’s Past, Shhh.
