We happened upon Patrick Dougherty's A Bird in the Hand on our way to the CVS (sparkling water and wine are a must in our hotel rooms).
As these things go (some might call it serendipity?) a story on volunteering to help create a Patrick Dougherty sculpture appeared in my blog feed just yesterday. Click here to read it, and you really should.
I walked by the installation later, and inspired by chirping of many birds — after all it is called A Bird in the Hand — I took this short video. I have no idea of Blogger and my iPhone will cooperate to actually share it with you, but I figured I'd try...(fingers crossed)...
And then there was this. On Saturday (the second full day of "the Fling") we visited the first private garden on the itinerary. Our bus parked in front of this garden...it must be noted that this is not the tropics, but rather Bethesda, Maryland. Yes indeedy.
It was not our destination, but it was rather outstanding. And because I was not yet in prime blogger mode (it was after all 5:30 am, "my time") all I managed to do was take a few photos with my phone.
I should have done further exploration with my camera in hand. Regrets.
I also took another video, this one from inside the bus. Will this show up? I hope so...(please pardon the noise, we Garden Bloggers can be a rather excitable bunch)...
There's lots more to see from the Capitol Region Fling. I took over 1500 photos (with my camera). Who knows how long it will take me to post about all our official destinations ...hopefully I'll wrap them all up before next years event in Austin, TX (!!!).
