Photo Monday – Brooklyn Botanical Garden Not Cherry Blossoms

What? I know nothing about flowers beyond “they’re pretty” and “some of them smell good”.

Now, these, I know are peonies.  Because it was written right next to them.  And some looked like candy canes!

And azaleas? I think?

I have no clue what these ones are.

And lilacs.  I know those because I grew up around them.

They hadn’t yet finished blooming when we visited (the same day as the cherry blossoms).  I should go back and see them again.  They’re one of my favorites.  Their scent reminds me of soap.  You know those fancy flower scented soaps? I don’t even know if they’ve ever made lilac scented soaps but I’m always reminded of the round, beautifully packaged Roger & Gallet ones.

Again, I wish I’d had more time to play around and get all my shots right.  There was this one spot where there were different kinds of tulips and other flowers.  If you stood at one end, it gave this lovely striped effect.  I tried to capture it but the one where I got the focus perfect doesn’t have great composition.  But I had fun with the girls and still haven’t checked out their pictures…
