Month of Nature #8- “Sun through the Blossoms”

nature8My last Xeric photo- it’s reminiscent of Day 187- “Illuminated” from my 365 Project. That’s all.



Month of Nature #6- “Tiger Lily”



If you followed my blog around this time last year, you’ll be familiar with my love-hate relationship with Xeric Demonstration Garden. (You can check out some info about it in my 365 Project here.) Anyway, I ventured back to Xeric after months of not going near there. Xeric is really a lot prettier when you don’t work there, I decided. Either wy, this is a pretty Tiger Lily I found there.

The 180’s

Hello everyone!

As you may have noticed, there has been a lack of pictures for the past few days. I’m so sorry! I’m so bad at posting my “picture a day” but have gotten by with posting pictures every three days. Hopefully I’ll continue to improve on that.

What I’m going to do for days 182 through 186 is go back and take pictures of what I have been doing this past week which has caused me to fall behind. It cheats on the  “photo a day” concept, but I hope you all like the photos anyway. 🙂 What they will be are photos of my work at Xeric Demonstration Garden and the grounds at Bishop-Lehr Hall at UNC, which I help maintain through my job.

You can enjoy a photo of Xeric that I posted previously here:

I hope you enjoy them!

Happy Friday,


Day 169- “Hidden Paradise”

Pictured today (my first on-time photograph in a while) is a place at UNC that not many people know about: Xeric Demonstration Garden. Tucked between Nottingham Field and the Judy Farr Alumni Center, this place is brutally hot during the day, as it demonstrates landscaping with desert plants and terrain. I discovered this little spot back in the trees on one hot day, and I went back around six and got this photo. It’s my happy place- I’m sharing my special tree place with you! Be happy! 😉

I love the light streaming through the trees and the color of the leaves.
