Wandering on the Iowa State University campus while my beloved participated in a study, I was pleasantly surprised to find Beardshear Hall. From the stories he tells, Beadshear was his home away from home back in the day he was working on his Ph.D.

I’m more inclined to take pictures of flowers than I am to photograph gates. But this gate caught my attention on a beautiful spring day at Reiman Gardens.
We always take time for the Butterfly Wing when visiting Reiman Gardens at Iowa State University. Before opening the door the guide told us the butterflies “are active today.” He was right – just a few of the 500+ butterflies were in the mood to pose.
The staff was out watering the flowers, hence the water droplets on the rose (above).
It was bright sunshiny day – the light was almost too harsh for getting decent pictures of some flowers. But it was fun to try!
A beautiful morning with no obligations was the perfect opportunity to visit Reiman Gardens on the campus of Iowa State University. Bright sunshine made for great shadows – but also meant I had to pay attention to where my shadow fell!
