Birmingham Confidential

Japanese Tea Garden : Birmingham Botanical Gardens
(Click image to enlarge)

Arrived in Birmingham, Alabama, this evening where we are staying with the lovely and hilarious Virginia Jones of Birmingham Daily Photo and Paris Through My Eyes. If you ever want to meet a great photo blogger, make a trip to Birmingham and hang out with Virginia!

We arrived a little early, so took an hour or so to visit the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. We were a little late in the season for cherry blossoms and azaleas, but still managed to capture a few decent photos of this beautiful public space.

VJ: World Famous in Poland Oatmeal with real cream. :-)


Marley: I had a ball meeting Virginia in person and spending time with her. She's a kick in the pants!


Cele: Glad you liked that one. Were it not for Virginia living in Birmingham, I'd likely never have gone there either. I love how broad my world is becoming because of the people I meet along the way!

I drool over your macro shots! Though I love the flowers, that grass is fantastic!

Always a joy to meet other photo enthusiasts and bloggers. Love that little red bridge.

Maya: Given the lack of sophistication that is my camera, I'm always amazed by my macro shots, too. :-)


Rob: You're at the top of my list of photobloggers I want to meet. Perhaps one day...
