UC Botanical Garden

While waiting for the bloom to advance in Northern California,  I continue to visit local gardens whose blooms seem ahead of those in natural settings. Today I went back to the UC Botanical Garden (Berkeley,CA).  I was mainly in the California and Asian sections.   The California flowers in bloom included berberis, zigadenes, trilliums, wallflowers,  poppies, ceanothus, ribes, iris and erythroniums (fFawn Lilies)  in bloom.   The Asian section had lot of rhododendrons, which were great for macro photography, and camelias in bloom.  Below are some photos from today; click on the thumbnails if you want to see a larger version of any photo.
