Descano Gardens in La Canada Flintridge, California, isn’t as big as Huntington Gardens in Pasadena, which I visited during my visit two years ago, but it’s large, beautiful, and much less expensive. My daughter suggested I go there the last day of my visit and am I glad I did! I spent well over two hours walking, smelling, sitting, changing lenses on my Nikon, and taking photos with my iPhone. It was such a wonderfully overwhelming experience that I finally reached the point at which I could not take one more photo or linger in one more garden area!
This shot qualifies for Sally’s theme of “Macro” this week. I like it because it looks as though the flower is sticking its tongue out or the doctor or dentist said, “Say ahhhh.”
