Thanks to our good friend (in blue), Katerina Eriksson, the Head Gardener of Perennials at the Huntington Botanical Gardens (San Marino, California), I had the chance to volunteer at their annual Spring Plant Sale.
I took this as yet another opportunity to exercise my creativity in a totally different way, photographing the astounding array of flowering plants … and to be around people who really know their stuff!
I like cactus … so I took a few shots of the most exotic looking ones.
Personally, I find that when I get out of my regular routine it’s a chance to churn up all kinds of new ideas, whether they are about art, writing or just taking a needed break. Highly recommended!
