#1712 Monday night at Red Butte Garden

Sorry I didn't post anything yesterday. I had the following post written and was trying to attache photos when the internet went haywire. :( Luckily, and somewhat strangely, Blogger saved my words. I think it's strange because I was getting an error message that said my post wasn't saved. Anyway, here is my post from yesterday...

A wee cold front moved through the valley yesterday and cooled the temperature down by about 20 degrees today. The high was in the mid-70s (about 24C). I decided to take advantage of the cooler temperature and head up to Red Butte Garden this evening after work to record blooms in the Children's Garden.

Little did I know that I would have a bonus tonight: Tonight was a Monday Family Night show in the courtyard. The performers were the Kenshin Taiko drummers. Not only was it a gorgeous evening, I had really cool drums to accompany me on my bloom recording quest!

When I first got to RBG tonight, I took a quick walk around the garden (because I can). Did I mention it was pretty much perfectly gorgeous this evening? By the time I got up to the Children's Garden, the drumming had begun and it sounded great. Before I was done going through my area, the drummers were done and I was kind of sad because I would have liked to watch them.

I was finishing up along the main path when one of the drummers walked past me and said hi. I told her how great the drums had sounded from where I had been. I asked her if they were done and she said they were going to do some more songs, but were on a break and she wanted to walk around the garden. I couldn't blame her. I finished up what I was doing and headed to the Courtyard to listen to the next set.

Usually I don't download my photos right away, but I thought my posts were kind of boring lately, so here are some photos I took this evening. Enjoy!

The waterfall because it's always different and it's my favorite.

The meadow is full of yellow flowers

Do you see the bee on this weird flower that looks like a bunch of berries?

Do you see the dragonfly on top of the flower?

The drummers were great!
