Quarryhill Botanical Gardens in Glen Ellen

A fan favorite of the group - we are returning to Quarryhill Botanical Gardens in Glen Ellen

Here is the link if you have never been there….any time of year is a great time to visit…we hope to see lots of flowers in bloom, and reflections off the ponds as well.

http://www.quarryhillbg.org

You will have a chance to use any lens in your bag for this spot - If you have a micro lens bring it for bugs and petals - seems to work well here.

There is a $10 charge to visit the Gardens.  Its a beautiful place, and they are accommodating us as a very large group.  We will also want to consider carpooling if possible, there are some open spaces and some businesses close by that may be able to accommodate us parking and sharing rides to inside the grounds.

There are a few picnic areas around the Gardens as well, so plan for lunch if you want to.  Ray and I will have a special treat to share with everyone to celebrate our 5 year SoCoPhoGro anniversary - which happens on April 21st. We hope you can join us.

It is because of you that this group is So AMAZING!

Keep Shooting!
