Friday afternoon I went to visit one my my favorite places, Descanso Gardens. Something magical always seems to happen there. Today, the Sunflowers (some of which towered above my head) were glowing.
Then I came upon these beautiful Lilies, which I understand are called Naked Ladies. They looked so beautiful basking in the dappled sun. The smell brought back a thousand memories of my Grandmother's house. I spent a lot of time photographing and admiring these flowers.
On my way to visit my favorite Camilla tree, I came upon this butterfly. He seemed to sit there and pose for me, perfectly still other then to show off his wings up or down. As I worked my way towards the Camilla tree, he followed me up the path.
Every time I visit Descanso Gardens, I stop by this tree, say hello and take a photo.
It's so full of energy.
I love photographing into the sun and the reflection it has on the flowers. It was a wonderful afternoon.
