Budding Photographers*

Last week we also went to the UC Botanical Gardens to see the Puya raimondii as it was blooming.



The boys were more impressed by all the facts about The Queen of the Andes (that it only blooms every 80-100 years in the wild and that this is the youngest bloom in captivity) then they were impressed by the actual plant, but we had a wonderful time exploring the gardens. The boys took turns leading the way through all the twists and turns of the garden and the “leader” was also the “photographer.”


They ended up taking over 100 photos that day! Most of them are of their shoes or fuzzy shots of random plants, but here are some of our favorites:

If you look really closely at the first shot, you can see a litter of baby raccoons.


*pun intended!

    Love this! What an incredible looking towering bloom – and what fun to let the boys take the pictures. Sounds like a great day all around!
