I think this says it all!
Last summer a friend and I visited the Norton-Simon Museum in Los Angeles. Inside is amazing, and the sculpture garden is as well. The brilliant golds of the tree’s flowers and the grasses in the pond caught my eye.
Naked Ladies are naked . . . of leaves. The flowers appear, and die off, and then the leaves appear. A member of the amaryllis family, they are a lovely seasonal bulb for the garden.
I have a patio garden with tomatoes, lettuce, radishes, herbs, and flowers. I like French Breakfast Radishes in particular.
Even the most ordinary places can be fun to photograph. I have a lot of pictures from a visit to a nursery. Given our current drought in California, I have stopped watering my back yard, and need to consider how to make it habitable . . . a nursery is a good place to start.
Succulents are plants you love or hate. I rather like them, especially when they begin to flower – then they can produce wild and wonderful extensions of themselves. To me, they seem almost indestructible. In a succulent garden, care must be given to the plants, just as in any garden, to ensure they look their best. I took this picture with the 70-300mm on the V1, and did post in LR, DxO Optics Pro 10, and a bit of spit.
