  Most growing things but most especially flowers have always fascinated me but never more so than since I moved to San Diego.  Here in the nearly constant, inviting climate almost ANYTHING will grow.  Given the various local microclimates the variety and array of beautiful and bizarre, fascinating and fantastic flowers and plants is incredible. I have no clue what some of them are.  So, while I think most of the subjects of these photographs are flowers... some, I admit, I'm not so sure about.

When I first moved here I was renting from a friend who had a wonderful garden with all manner of plants.  Something was always growing there.  And one of the wonders of the area is the incredible collection of flora at Balboa Park and the world famous San Diego Zoo.  I have heard there is more money invested in the zoo's plant collection than in their animal collection.

The photos in this current collection have been taken almost exclusively with digital cameras including:

Nikon e5700
Nikon e8700
Nikon D100
Canon 20D
Canon 5D

OK, enough chit-chat, let's get to the images.
