BEGONIAS BY THE POND By Cecelia Lyden

The Conestoga House Gardens was our second stop on Wednesday. Again, the weather was hot and humid, but I found a shady spot near this pond. In the time we were there, I was able to get the whole composition down-most of the back and middleground and some of the foreground. I neeeded to do more detail work on the statuary and the flowers. My camera did not pick up the details or the different shades and tints in the begonias and leaves in my painting.
