Nikon 105mm Macro Lens at the Elizabeth F. Gamble Garden Center

I recently returned to the Elizabeth F. Gamble Garden Center. I wasn’t sure what to expect at an outdoor garden in mid-November, even in California. This being the tail end of autumn, most of the vegetable beds were empty. I did enjoy the fragrance from the few remaining flowers on the sweet osmanthus tree. I would love to plant one of those trees in the backyard.

I love chrysanthemums, as well as a cup of chrysanthemum tea. This yellow chrysanthemum was in bloom.

This chrysanthemum had a spiral pattern to it.

This pink chrysanthemum reminds me of a sea anemone.

I also met some of the residents of the garden.

A friendlier-looking bumblebee.

I’m not sure if the droplets were from a recent rain, the sprinklers or just morning dew, but they added an interesting dimension to the morning walk.
