The Herb Garden

This afternoon was well-spent at the Herb Garden in Almonte, Ontario. One of my girls is having her wedding there next week and we needed to do a final walk-through. It is such a beautiful property out in the country, with gorgeous gardens and heritage barns. It is definitely worth the drive in the summer months.

I caught my first photographs of this year’s butterflies, who may be Painted Ladies, but I am not completely sure. I really need to develop some sort of technique because I literally spun around in circles, following some of them. Maybe I should sit still and let them come to me? Any tips?

I am also going to be the unofficial photographer to this wedding; I was able to scope out a few spots against the beautiful weathered wood of the heritage barns. Here is hoping the “Big Day” is just as beautiful as today was!
