UCR Botanical Gardens


UCR Botanical Gardens

Today our plein aire painting group was invited to paint the botanical gardens. They have been closed since Christmas due to flooding and they are going to reopen next weekend. There is 46 acres of gardens from succulents to tropicals, roses to herbs. Everything is starting to bloom. This hillside was in the South African garden. This is one of my sketches.

Those all look very familiar plants Desiree, in a lovely sketch - we've had the flooding as well, though thankfully not in our botanical gardens.
