Blossoms on Boston Neck Road

This summer I drove down to Casey Farm with my Ashford Joy spinning wheel to demonstrate at their Farmer's Market. As I drove down Boston Neck Road I noticed a small low pond. Gathered around its circumference were several photographers with cameras and tripods. I almost came to a grinding halt when I discovered what had drawn them there. Keep in mind that the flowers are the size of large grapefruit which is huge when compared to what one finds on local ponds.

With the photographers permission I was able to stand in front of their cameras so I could take these shots with my humble Panasonic Lumex:

Always been one of my favorite spots to stop and take a pic. There were two pictures in the Providence Journal last week, of an artist painting the scene. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely preface to a spinning demonstration. Thanks for sharing since they're not part of my world - I love seeing the *other* side of my country.
