Fifteen LPA members gathered at Crazy Otto’s in Acton for a hearty breakfast on Saturday morning.
We left there at about 9:45 a.m. There was a little low fog, but by the time we reached our destination, the sun was out and the weather was warming up. We all met for a group picture before going our separate ways inside the gardens. Some of us headed toward the rose garden and the Japanese gardens. Others went to the desert garden and the conservatory. I think between us we probably covered most of the area gardens, and got some good photos during the course of the day.
We had decided earlier to meet at 1 p.m. for lunch at the cafÃ© inside the gardens. So we all had a chance to compare notes on what pictures we had been able to get and what we planned for the afternoon. The Wares headed for the conservatory after lunch.
We all got some interesting shots and Wendy viewed a flower under a microscope. The weather was kind to us and remained cool enough for a sweater or a light jacket, but not too cold.
We headed home t about 3:30 p.m. and went out for a Chinese dinner when we arrive back in Lancaster.
