    Nice photos, Jim. I enjoy seeing photos of flowers and leaves closeup because it brings out details our eye often misses when we see the plant in a landscape setting.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice, Jim. I love the art of the garden, especially when my garden has retired for the season.

    What fabulous photos, with such clarity of the subject but dreamy blurred surrounding objects. I love how they reminded me that the beauty of plants can be appreciated from so many different perspectives. Thanks so much for taking the time to share these. Any one of them is worthy of wall art!

    I love close-ups of flowers. They show the beautiful intricacies of each flower that you don't see in photos of the larger pics.

    My favorite is the photo of the koi where you can see the swirl of the water. Looks like a lovely place.

    Good morning, Jim, and thanks for sharing your beautiful photography. We were just in Montreal visiting our children and, unfortunately, the day that we had planned to go to the botanical garden turned into a thunderstorm so it’s nice to see at least a glimpse.

    Beautiful images, Jim! I enjoy seeing the close-up details of the way plants are structured. I visited MBG last year in early May and would love to see it again in the height of summer. The pink flowering trees were lovely in May. Thanks for sharing!
