Cheekwood Botanical Gardens In Spring

  • Apr 6, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Cheekwood has some amazing things happening now. Tulips are nearly in bloom, Saturdays are art days so bring the family/children and let them do a workshop while you roam the grounds and get some great shots of Spring's glory, from 10am-1pm enjoy some jazz in the Herb Garden every Saturday,  Garden Tales will be held in the Sigourney Cheek Literary Garden every Saturday, and other awesome events will happen on Saturdays until April 27. Cheekwood is a treasure in Nashville and deserves to be recognized as such. Let's get together and celebrate their uniqueness with some awesome photos! If it is inclement weather that week. Check out their website for more information on all the fun happenings at www.cheekwood.org

    Had a great time shooting in Cheekwood. As I told some of you, I am from NY/NJ area, so it's nice to join an event with a local group during my short stay here. I will post my pictures after I get back home on Tuesday. Good meeting everyone.

    There are some awesome photos in the photo album! Great day for pics at the gardens...And you are right Laura, the purpose of the group is to learn from each other. Maybe next time we can have a short get together at the end and bring a laptop and look at our photos together. If anyone wants to comment on the photos they posted (type of camera, aperture used, effects intended, etc) that might be helpful too. I will also post my cell number the next time so that we can call if we are late. Sorry we missed meeting you Johanna!

    Great day, had fun meeting everyone!

    Susan, thanks for putting this meetup together for us today! I really enjoyed the whole experience. The one thing I think would be helpful, because we are there to learn from each other while taking some great shots, is that keeping everyone together, at least in view, would be, for me, a well rounded experience. Giving us a chance to learn from each other, ask questions & just to get to know one another. (even going in small groups) This was a big venue and lots of ground to cover, so a lttle harder to do today, I get that. You picked a great day! Thanks again, looking forward to the next one.....

    • Jarrod M.

      Most likely or the organizer can pick one for us. I think we'll be hard to miss if all show up :)

      Susan left a note on here. She's meeting people inside th he front gate.

      April 5, 2013

  • Jessica

    This is my first time also! I'm excited.. Wish I knew how much everything was gonna cost tho

    April 5, 2013

  • Susan B.

    Okay for those who want to meet someplace we can meet at the inside of the front entrance. We will wait 15 minutes for the stragglers or the lines to get done. Usually, just for your info, the photo shoots are not a group activity. Especially for this one where we have so many going we will probably spread out anyway. But I have no problem hanging out with ya all! See you Saturday. And judging by the comments below the flowers are a little late in blooming but the warm weather we are expecting today and tomorrow might just bring them out so I am going anyway. Lots to photograph at Cheekwood. There is a fee to get in and for parking (I am not sure about the parking part so it may just be the fee to get in). I believe there is a discount if yuo have a zoo membership.

      Susan, I have never been other than just to walk through. Do they mind tripods? Just curious on that part.

      April 5, 2013

    • Susan B.

      Tripods are permitted as long as you are respectful of their plants and other visitors.

    Sorry to miss this but was just there a few days ago. Tulips still have about a week before they're all in full bloom,but there's still lots of color. Made other plans, but hope you guys have fun!

    April 5, 2013

  • Jan R.

    Unfortunately plans have changed and I will not be able to make it. I look forward to seeing some amazing shots from everyone.

    I am going to wait a little later this month. Some friends were there last Sat, there is not much blooming yet. Hope there will be another trip scheduled in 3 or 4 wks. It should be perfect by then. HAVE FUN!

    April 4, 2013

  • Dave T.

    Where in Cheekwood are we meeting?

    April 4, 2013

  • Susan B.

    Sorry, meant to say that if its inclement weather we can go the following week or schedule for another date by April 27th to take advantage of the great events happening on Saturdays. There is a fee to get in if you are not a member.
