Re: Powell Gardens 2019 Part 2

This is the last batch of photos for Powell Gardens. Here, we have the stag made of Lego bricks. The mom and fawn were shown last in the previous post. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48740839892_651fd9f8dc_c.jpg The flowers are real. The background and shadow are fake. https://live.staticflickr...

Re: Powell Gardens 2019 Part 2

They don’t look like roses, but they are called shrub roses. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48701036937_fba6fa41ac_c.jpg Even spindly cone flowers are nice. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48700527818_291791dd78_c.jpg Must be a relative. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48701037092_f5eaa...

Re: Powell Gardens 2019 Part 2

Yes. The Lego Bricks presentation lasted from May 1 through July 28, 2019. I remember reading in a magazine that another presentation will take place from September 21 through October 20, 2019. It is "Fall Fling: Through the Looking Glass." Here is what their website says about it: "Follow Alice dow...

Re: Powell Gardens 2019 Part 2

See how nicely purple flowers go with faded wood? https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48672827407_c2e39e7222_c.jpg They are nice even up close. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48672316383_cc081d78e2_c.jpg One stands out. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48672654056_dea12c88b1_c.jpg Hangin’ in...

This Lego display was part of the scene including the wheelbarrow shown last time. The figures were life-sized. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48613632118_c7ac1fc4ac_c.jpg This peacock is made of 68,827 Lego bricks. I darkened everything but the peacock so you could see it better. https://live....

My son admires one of the garden pools. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48585422692_c409089e47_c.jpg The hummingbird and flower are made of 61,107 Lego bricks.

It did work, KCCat! What beautiful pictures! There were so many butterflies. Almost like a Disney movie. Thank you for giving me another shot at your lovely photos.

I like #22 (people bridge with lights on side). The great perspective draws you in. But all of them are worth viewing. Thanks much!

Hi, KCCat. The photo you posted above shows that Kauffman Garden is indeed a beautiful place. I clicked on the link you provided, but the site required me to sign in. I don't have an account with them, so I couldn't see your other pictures. Not that it matters, but Flickr allows you to keep up to a ...

Re: Powell Gardens 2019

Thank you, KCCat. I didn't know about the festival of butterflies or Kauffman Garden. I should see more around our city. Maybe you could snap a few pictures and post them here. I would love to see them.

Re: Powell Gardens 2019

We'll have to go back, as we didn't see all of it. Ran out of time. It didn't seem all that far away, but I suppose it would be nice to have a beautiful garden right smack in Kansas City. On to the next set of pictures. More work to be done. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48418064476_c6d5f5841b...

Re: Powell Gardens 2019

I plopped the picture into the natural frame it contains. Ignore the blue hose. Too lazy to clone it out. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48376345842_7ff709ac0a_c.jpg Okay. This started out as a portrait-oriented image. The marigolds were below the cabbage in the dirt. I simply moved them and cr...

These colors are great. The flowers seem to be made of wax, but they are real. And perfect. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48330326596_a1017cdeb8_c.jpg The old gray bench, she ain’t what she used to be. Notice the one purple “lollipop” unfurling. It got a late start. https://live.staticflickr.c...

Re: Powell Gardens 2019

Yes, it does seem to be a big place. We didn't see more than half of it. I didn't really know much about the funding, either. I looked online briefly and found this statement at <http://gkccf.guidestar.org/nonprofit.aspx?orgId=1322>: "The Gardens, like many non-profits, always needs funding. We have...

Powell Gardens 2019

I assume Powell Gardens is close enough to Kansas City for these pictures to be appropriate here. My son and I visited this place on 5/31/19. It claims to be Kansas City's botanical garden. It is a 970-acre botanical garden in Kingsville, Missouri, 30 miles east of Kansas City. It features 6,000 var...

Re: TheLastGentleman Goes Downtown

What a clean and beautiful city! What great pictures! You do us proud. That Peck's sign reminded me of the time my mother took me to that department store to buy me a winter coat. I was 16 and she was 57. The cashier asked her if she was my grandmother. My mother yelled back at her, "No! I am her gr...

Re: Minnesota 2015 Part 8

Now, that's an interesting thought. One problem for me is that I'm not a real photographer. Yes, I do take a lot of pictures--or used to, but I don't really know much about cameras or associated equipment. I pretty much just point and shoot. My Nikon camera is smarter than I am. I'm fairly handy wit...
