These gardens are located on both sides of the historical McIlvaine House here in Philadelphia.

Last week when I felt like making an escape, I went to Bartram’s Gardens for a quick visit. I had only been there for a very short walk-through once in the past. When I went last week, the weather was overcast when I had left and just perfect for doing macro photography. But by the time I got there, it was full-on sun and full-on humidity and full-on hotness. The kind where you felt like you took a shower from being outside. I was there long enough to take a stroll around and check out the plants that were there, snap a few mediocre photos, get a quick glimpse of a garter snake, sit and ponder for a while, and realize that the weather in Pennsylvania just stinks. Of course, this is nothing that I didn’t know before; I’m just reaffirming the fact right here, right now.
