Weekly Photo Challenge: Layered

Camellias at Planting Fields Arboretum in Oyster Bay, NY. Photo by Alyson Goodman.

A visit to Planting Fields Arboretum in Oyster Bay, NY isn’t complete these days without a stop at the pool in the camellia greenhouse to get what has become the most Instagramable picture. The camellias in the greenhouse generally grow during the winter and when I took this photo, it was on the end of their blooming season. Normally, the pool is covered in camellias, but these two were the only whole flowers still floating in the pool. I loved the mix of the flowers, layered with the water and the pennies thrown in for wishes right under them. Next winter I’ll aim to capture the perfect Instagram shot when the pool is filled with camellias.
