San Diego Botanic Garden

We spent a few hours on Saturday morning wandering around the San Diego Botanic Garden (formerly known as the Quail Botanical Garden) with our local photography club.  The sky was overcast, which helps a lot when trying to get pictures of flowers.

My first stop was the frog pond, but unlike last April, there were no frogs to be found on Saturday morning. We did find some nice lotus flowers though. 


Here are a few more images of other flowers we found around the garden. 






Well, this next one isn't exactly a flower, but a leaf I found in the rainforest area. I wanted to get an example of thin depth of field with the 35mm lens on my Fuji X-E1.


The San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas, CA is a great place to spend a few hours walking around - and there are lots of benches placed along the paths for those times when you just want to sit for a bit and enjoy the scenery.


After lunch we stopped off at Elizabethan Desserts, a little bakery not too far from the Garden, for cupcakes.  They were good.
