Foxy Foxgloves and Delicate Dancing Daisies

We had planned a family day out to Muir Woods, a redwood forest near San Francisco, on Memorial Day but little did we know how popular it was going to be! After assessing the parking situation we moved on to the city and decided to picnic in Golden Gate Park.

We found a lovely little section of the park called the Shakespeare Garden which although not big had some lovely floral surprises.  The California Spring Blossom and Wildflower Association originally established it as the Garden of Shakespeare’s Flowers and it has a history dating back to 1928.

A flowery photo in a family magazine

I did not expect that the first flower photo I had published in print would be in a family magazine and have nothing to do with floral photography! Nevertheless my ‘Poppies on the Sussex Downs’ image has just been published in Playground Magazine along with my article about our relocation to San Francisco – if you like you can have a read here http://www.zyyne.com/zh5/118381#p=24 The editor,Caroline,  is also a blogger and photographer so feel free to visit her blog Beyond the Playground
