So, on Sunday the BF and I went to the Desert Botanical Gardens. Since I posted a couple of heavy-hitters within the last week, I decided to end the week on a lighter note and share with you some of my awesome photos from our visit.
I am not so great with photos of people or artwork (the BF is fantastic at both of these categories) but do take great landscape, plant and animal photographs. My San Francisco photo album is one of my favorites for this reason, too.
Keep in mind as you marvel over how stunning the desert is that this place is less than 15 minutes from our house and we live in the middle of the city. What a great day! As the BF said, we “did something cultural and were still home in time to get drunk and relax before going to bed!”
This is the view when you first walk into the gardens:
Everything was blooming:
A barrel cactus convention:
Prickly pear cactus blossoms:
The herb garden (yes, we can grow regular plants, too!):
