Don't fall in the Water....

Yes I almost fell in there :p Good thing I know how to swim! (then again probably not that deep). And fishes! Kind of cute little things.

So Monday the photography class went to the dundee botanic gardens to take some photos. I had planned on just taking pictures around the college but was told I could go, which was really nice :D

It was pretty dark in the greenhouses but its a nice walk (even if the humid green house did me in and I was limping after). Managed to get a few pictures that were not blurry but I can always use the blurry ones for reference photos. I got the coolest idea after looking at one tree, just need to sketch it out :)

Wasn't 100% sure what the weather was going to do so only stepped outside to get this photo and it was pretty chilly out (of course I forgot my gloves :/), me and stina retreated inside after this photo.

And a few nice tall cacti. Why can't I seem to grow one dammit!? :p Actually forgetting to water the seeds probably has something to do with it lol

I get to lug home tomorrow all of the art from my drawer, so I promise to have some more art from college to show. It all weighs a ton, could drop it on someone and kill them (paper cuts are another option :p)

Oh thank you! I love our Botanical Gardens here, but it's at the other end of the island. I would go every week if I lived there!! We have snow forecast for this weekend, while it is 30*C today!!!

It would have been even colder when you went back out had you fallen in the pond;-)

I think I'd rather just have death by falling paper tonnage rather than by a thousand paper cuts. That one is a sharper pain!

What a beautiful place! Your photograph of the pond would make a nice painting.

I kill cacti, too. I over-watered the last one...

Enjoyed the pics and lots of college art to post. Cool. I'll be checking back.

cindy they make great relaxing places to visit :) snow and its that warm?!! o.0

sandi, lol very true. I think i'd rather be squished by paper as well rather then get paper cuts (hmm i'm in a morbid mood :p)

michelle, I've done that too :/ for such a hardy plant they are pretty hard to keep sometimes

thanks Teresa :) managed to get the art home without too many swear words and no one died lol

Isn't it great to smell the green in the middle of winter? The indoor gardens are one of the reasons I visit the toronto zoo.
Your pics look lush and warm but hint of the chill that lurks just outside.

Gorgeous! A lovey escape into parasdise while it's cold and wintery outside.

Get a "pup" cactus instead of trying to grow it from seed.
And then don't water it.
