Since I was in Lakeland looking for baby swans in early April, I decided to stop by Hollis Gardens. The public gardens are right in the heart of downtown. The gardens were busy with families getting their pre-Easter shots, early graduation portraits, engagement photos, etc. The gardens are very well-kept and pretty. I’m still practicing using my Nikon 85mm macro lens. All of the above were taken with that lens. It mostly cloudy but the sun did peek out a few times. Soon all of the flowers here in the Tampa bay area will start to look a little crispy from the heat.
