As I was hurrying to leave HB this afternoon, an iris invited me into the Memorial Garden. I can’t say I captured it well but I did the best I could.
A brief run through the HB garden
I haven’t shot much in the Homeward Bound Memorial Garden lately. And I probably won’t do so for the near future at least. But yesterday I took a dog over to visit with his best friend, Lori, and that gave me an unexpected opportunity to spend a few minutes in the garden.
