Back to Botanicals

One of the highlights from a San Diego trip a couple weekends ago was the botanical garden in Balboa Park. It was a really magical experience especially because it was raining and that just made the whole ambiance that much more refreshing and the plants appear that much more enlivened and happy. It felt like a jungle with thriving ferns and vibrant rare orchids. I'm not a botanical buff or anything, but learning more about flora life is a growing interest. Maybe the new dream job is florist, gardener or landscape architect.

Hope your week is going lovely.


  1. It really is a lovely little space, isn't it? I always used to dream about being a florist too. I thought it would be such a lovely life, making bouquets to put smiles on people's faces.

  2. so pretty, pretty.
    i imagine a life among the plants and flowers would be such a zen {er} day and night....
    very appealing.

  3. oh that looks like such a lovely place! i don't know very much about botany at all, but i love being surrounded by all the greenery.

  4. haha, see I told you that you would be great at that! You have such a good eye for detail and are so thoughtful and caring, I don't see how you wouldn't be a fabulous florist/plantist (sp?)
