Inside The Rain Garden



These were actually taken this summer. I finally got around to completely editing them. You see the school next to my house have these low areas that they cannot use because they flood with water every time it rains. So, they decided to build these self-sustaining rain gardens where rainwater can flow to and be absorbed while also creating a safe environment for plants and animals. The school was doing summer maintenance and the rain garden was open. So I went in wearing this little tie-dyed slip dress and took some photos.  How could I not, the field was so beautiful and there were so many butterflies and honey bees just flying around in love with all the bloomed flowers. (I forget what flowers these are, by the way)

I love this little slip dress or any slip dress. They are great for warm weather or vacations in warmer climates. You are just able to put the dress on and be nice a comfortable. I also love the print of this dress, I have this thing for tie-dye in the summer. It just a great pattern to wear out to concerts and events you have during the season. The pattern just screams summer, just relaxing and chill. I guess we have The Grateful Dead to thank for that.  I also love the hemline of the dress. It’s not a high-low hemline, which I am so over with. I never liked the way those feel. But it is uneven, so it creates a nice flow when you walk.

Looking back on these pictures is interesting since I just recently bought a drone to take aerial shots. I was thinking this meadow would have been perfect to take aerial views for you all. But I did not have the drone at the time.  Right now, I am trying to figure out how to work the drone and be able to take awesome photographs of for you all. It would be interesting to take photographs in Philadelphia for you all too. I cannot wait to perfect my new camera. I am also working on some videos for you all too. But they are taking longer to edit.  But soon will be out, I promise.

I am so sorry but this dress is sold out by now. But feel free to Google similar dress, if you wish. I always say you can never go wrong with Google when it comes to looking for something.
