Today I’m taking part in Macro Monday at Lisa’s Chaos. I recently visited the San Diego Botanic Garden and got the opportunity to photograph a lot of blooms. Below are a couple of flowers I was able to capture on camera. The thing is, I have no idea what type of flowers they are, and they weren’t labeled. What can I say? I’m a photographer and clearly not an horticulturalist.
For each flower below, I’ll show you what the plant looks like, as well as a macro of the flower itself. If you know the name of these plants, please share your knowledge in the Comments section. Remember you can click on each photo for a larger view.
The first plant looks like a succulent but that’s how far I can go. That soft pink flower is very pretty.
The next flowers belong to some kind of shrub about six feet tall. There were a lot of bloom on that tree, here are just a few.
Here’s a close-up of one of the purple flowers. They don’t smell but they sure look nice.
