The    desert    flowers    have    been    wonderful    this    year,    but    they’re    not    the    only    color    in
Southern California.
A   favorite   spot   with   many   of   our   members   for   photographing   flowers   is   Descanso   Gardens
in La Canada- Flintridge near the intersection of the 2 and 210 freeways.
They   are   known   for   their   camellias,   roses,   tulips,   and   myriad   other   blooms.   Of   course   what’s
blooming   depends   a   lot   on   the   weather,   but   the   Descanso   Gardens   web   site   says   March   is
good for tulips, camellias, irises, lilacs, cherry trees, clivia and daffodils.
They    are    somewhat    restrictive    on    commercial    photography    (pros    pay    big    bucks),    but
amateurs   are   welcome   with   some   limitations.   Tripods   are   allowed   in   the   garden,   but   not
inside   buildings.   Additional   photographic   equipment   is   prohibited   (lights,   reflectors,   props,
costumes, models, etc.), except under commercial contract.
Hours   of   operation   are   9-5,   so   we   will   plan   to   leave   Coco’s   parking   lot   in   Redlands   at   8   AM,
Thursday,March   21,   2019.   General   Admission   is   $9,   $6   for   seniors   (65+).   We   will   have   lunch
in   the   area   and   try   to   hit   the   freeways   before   the   afternoon   rush.   We   should   be   back   in
Redlands by 4.
If   you   plan   to   go,   please   let   me   know   by   email   or   text   (909-
553-9494). Check out the Descanso Gardens web site at Photo By Carl Detrow
