Yesterday afternoon I spend some time in the Regional Parks Botanic Garden in Tilden Park in Berkeley. Botanic Gardens are a good place to see early blooming plants, especially Manzanitas this time of year. See my recent post Mostly Manzanitas. I was again photographing Manzanitas, especially the Hearst Manzanita, which is my current favorite. I also spent some time doing close-ups of bark on Tecate Cypress, which has interesting curling, peeling bark.
