I was visiting the Natural History Museum nature gardens last week to take a few photos with my macro lens. I’ve had the lens for a while but I don’t use it very often. So I decided to force myself to take photos with only that lens. Although I was enjoying doing that my attention was drawn to the rainbow of colors next door at the Exposition Park Rose Garden.
Probably because of the heavy rains we have experienced after years of drought, the roses are apparently blooming early. The garden was a gorgeous sight to behold.
The best estimate I can find is there are 200,000 bushes and over 200 varieties of roses in the 7-acre garden.
And it’s a short Expo Line trip from Culver City. Walk across the tracks from the station and you are there!
It was such a beautiful April day in LA and I was grateful to be alive!
