Friday Flower Fiesta (1-16-15)—It’s aloe season in San Diego!

Friday Flower Fiesta

The San Diego Zoo and the Safari Park both are internationally recognized zoos, but they also are internationally recognized arboretums and botanical gardens, too.

Now is a great time to see both the critters and the plants because it’s aloe season here in San Diego.

Here are some recent aloe pictures:

    WOW. Amazing. My aloe never blooms ( although it’s fat and happy and taking over multiple places). It must miss home.
    Some day I hope to see San Diego zoo and that park. They are world renowned and the gold standard.
    So many cool pix. #2 has lovely lines, flow and textures, #4 has all that dimensional movement up and the water droplets with adding even more depth and reflective sparkle. # 5 is just beautiful – color, texture, contrast. #7 has those yellow pollen(?) “darts” and it looks likes the plant is ready to sling them. #8 has such compositions and shapes, the last one begs to be touched.
    These are very cool – you could do a notecards/ calendar of something for the Aloe festival.
    You live in a such a nice warm spot with always something cool happening

      Thanks for all your thoughts. I have all sorts of things on my mind for using my pictures–Fine Art America, Etsy, Zazzle, and more. Just not enough time in the day to do everything I’d like to do.

        You are ahead of the game – so many fret they have no ideas. Your stuff is so good, it’s bound to land in the perfect (hopefully profitable) spot….national park/resort Tshirts or tote bags ( you just need one good source producing/rep-ing/selling them)
        What ever direction you go, let someone else to the production – your pictures are too good for you to take time away from photography.

            Will have to check out Fine Art America. On demand production has really changed things. Wish some big company would license one of your designs and do all the work for production and sales, while you travel on looking for new. Maybe not as much money per piece – but gets your name of there. Austin co. used to advertise yearly for t-shirt designs – if I see it, do you want the info? Would mean giving up control of one design, but you’d have all the others on your website(s)

              Thanks, but no. Once I start doing t-shirts, I’m pretty sure it will be over at Zazzle. They have anything and everything one could possibly want when it comes to clothes and non-fine art items.
