Brightening up a gloomy day…

What is there to do on a gloomy looking day but run errands after work?  And a pedicure, that’ll usually cheer me up.  But my brilliant idea of stopping at the Botanical Gardens on the way home yesterday might not have been the best choice of activity in my flip flops, and with my newly painted toenails.  Picture dirt paths and flip flops.  And it turns out the mosquitos were feasting on my ankles while I was there.  Made getting to sleep last night a chore.  Nevertheless I did manage to get a few photos.1017botanicalflower1017botanicalflower21017botanicalgardenbutterfly

And I also got some photos on Sunday at the Chinsegut Conservation Center when we were there for a photography class.  Really we were learning some of the features of using Lightroom, but new technology and I have a long standing love/hate relationship.
