Longwood Gardens is a marvelous botanical garden with over 4 million square meters of garden flowers, wild flowers, parks and meadows, and a large conservatory to protect weather sensitive plants. Some friends and I explored the gardens on an overcast day. I had some of my best cameras and lenses with me.
The James flows through Richmond bringing with it an abundance of fish and waterfowl. It was fun to run along a catwalk that lies atop a pipeline that extends below a railroad track that runs along the river, and catch up with some herons fishing and a river snake sunbathing.
