This is the earliest in a day shoot I've made of The Lake Merritt Gardens. It was a perfect time since it wasn't too hot and it was slightly overcast so that the Divine Glow of the plants and flowers Radiated their Glory!

In the beginning I was surprised to discover that there was a large gathering across the street in the Band Shell. It was an event to encourage Breast Cancer Awareness and Fundraising. It felt like a big community party with a band playing and everyone wearing bright pink in honor of the occasion.

Then I returned to my favorite part of the park, the various gardens! My most favored are the Japanese Garden, Palm Garden and the Butterfly Garden to all of which, I was able to devote a lot of attention! Here is a slideshow made from 45% of the 276 pictures!

Hoping U will enjoy them also. Love, Iadora U!!!

PS. I thought I was going to a Photo Swap Meet-Up but I had the date wrong! It turned out to be exactly what I needed anyway!
