Pictures for each calendar year will be collected to this gallery at the end of the year.
This gallery is for photos of flowers found in outdoor domestic or public gardens, and of the garden settings in which I found them. Pictures of botanical gardens that are place specific, landscape type pictures are in my 'Places - by type' category http://arctangent.smugmug.com/Places-By-Type/Arboretums-and-Botanical )
Whenever I feel confident of the identify of a flower (as from an accompanying label in a botanical garden, etc.) I've included that information. If I'm clueless about the identify, I usually say so, and I solicit the viewers' help in correcting these deficiencies.
Some flower varieties have separate galleries in the 'Nature/Flowers - Single Varieties' sub-category, as do orchids (in the 'Conservatory Plants' category). Other galleries of particular kinds of flowering plants are sprinkled throughout my 'Nature' category.
