Gardens Alive!

I just want to take a quick moment to say a BIG, BIG thank you to the members of the Boston Beekeepers Community on Facebook and to the Norfolk County Beekeepers Association for spreading the word that I've been in search of large gardens where I can photograph bees. The response from both communities has been overwhelming. There are so many gardens out there! All I can say is New Englanders are a friendly and welcoming bunch. I'm going to take the next few days to narrow down my options. If you do not hear back from me right away, please don't be offended. I have quite a number of places to scope out via Google and plenty of emails to reply to! I can't wait to get started. I wish I had asked earlier in the summer when we first moved to MA, but alas the truth is I probably wouldn't have had the time to photograph any bees with all of the work we've done setting up our home. Weather permitting I should be able to visit a couple of gardens this weekend. Sadie and Dana, if you would like to use some of my photos on your websites/groups/presentations, kindly let me know which ones. It's my little gift to you for helping me out! 

In the fall I'll be on the lookout for children. If you have children aged 5 and up, remember to keep me in mind--you can look up more info on what I do through my photos, my "About me" page, and my Pricing page. I'm an artist, so there's never any charge. 

If you're one of my followers, I offer you my sincerest apologies for not updating Professor Gadgetman and for not updating my blog sooner. The last few months have been a whirlwind for my family, and now that we're more settled in and getting into a good routine I'll have more time to update my other projects.  

Till my next review, rambling, or post, this is, hey, hey!
