Yesterday afternoon, I’d gone to Rocky Ridge County Park for the first time, to look (unsuccessfully) for mountain bikers, and en route, I noticed some greenhouses just off the road. So today, knowing that the paper would need us photographers to get some more enterprise/feature photos, I went to the greenhouses to make some pictures.
It’s not quite time for the tulips, lilies and hyacinths, but the ladies working there were planting seeds and transplanting young plants. Two of the pictures I turned in to the paper are pretty similar. One is a little more “artsy”; the other is more functional. I’ll let you decide which you prefer.
