Brookside Gardens

My girlfriend and I took a stroll around a quiet neighborhood in Maryland this past Saturday.  The following day, we took a trip down to Brookside Gardens in Wheaton Maryland — http://www.montgomeryparks.org/brookside/.

 

The gardens are absolutely gorgeous.  The most impressive attraction is the butterfly exhibit.  For a small entry fee, $6 per person,  you can spend some time in an enclosed area with dozens of butterflies (both exotic and domestic).  Highly recommended.

 

Here are a few photos from the weekend.  All photos were taken with my om-d and either the 60mm macro or the panasonic 100-300mm.  Enjoy.
