Bloom in the Park 2012

Had a wonderful day at Bloom in the Park with my camera, although it was hard to get shots of the gardens with so many people milling around them.  There were many beautiful flowers and plants to shoot, with gorgeous sunshine to boot, it was heavenly.

People keep telling me that the bee in the photo above looks Photoshopped, I can guarantee you he’s not!  I think it’s just that he looks so sharp against the blurred background, and his peculiar pose is simply a result of constantly snapping with the camera to try and get the right shot.  For this one decent photo I got of him I also took about ten others where he’s completely out of focus, it was a tough capture!

Anyway, hope you like this set of shots and that it gives you a rough idea of the gardens.  Already looking forward to next year’s festival!

13 Sweet Notes on Bloom in the Park 2012 ~

  1. Wonderful photographs, my fav garden is the one with the tea party and bird houses so country cottage like. Its look like it was an amazing event again this year.

    All things nice…

  2. Eadaoin these photos are amazing. I wasn’t there but if it was as good as this I am so sorry to have missed it. I hope the Bloom Festival appreciate this fantastic work you have done, they should really hire you, it never looked so lovely. X:~)

    Hi Éad! What a fabulous garden show! And your photos are fantastic! A really visual treat – I have been pouring over them and enjoying every detail. Each of the displays has such character! I love those wire spheres, too.

    I do know what what you mean about the bee. They are so hard to shoot in flight. I don’t think it looks added in but his bum is really cute. :)

    Wishing you and D a beautiful weekend. David arrived back from Belgium today so we are at last both at home and hope to stay here for the summer.
