Yesterday I ventured to a park in nearby Leesburg, Florida called Venetian Gardens. It is located on the west side of a big lake, Lake Harris. In addition to the pretty view of the lake, paths meander through the 64-acre park which has lots of mini-ponds. Between the flowers, trees, squirrels, birds and people, there were tons of picture possibilities. I brought home over 200 images to process, so I’ll definitely be posting a few more in the days to come.
The edges of the lake and the ponds were booming with vegetation, including pickerelweed. I’ve always thought these dark purple, spiky water plants were pretty, but I never knew what they were. So, I finally did a Google search to find out!
