Friday Flower Fiesta (12-8-17)—San Diego Botanic Garden in December

Friday Flower Fiesta

I like to take my photographs and kind of mess them up in Photoshop and various other programs so that they don’t look like photographs anymore. That means I’m always on the lookout for new digital photo editing programs. One I discovered a few days ago is called “Impresso Pro” by a company called JixiPix. They claim to have

a long and lucrative history developing well-known 3D, Video and Multi-Media software, not to mention an industry of iOS and Android apps. Thanks to the response from our users, we have been recognized as one of the top developers from Apple, Mac World, USA Today and other industry leaders.”

Yet they don’t have a page on Wikipedia….

Nonetheless, following are 24 photographs from my December visit to the San Diego Botanic Garden, messed up a little bit in Impresso Pro.

      The fig is my favorite, too. My wise old grandmother had a huge fig bush in her yard, and I was always out there looking for ripe figs. I’m currently trying to find a fig bush for our new home here. No luck yet. Probably isn’t the season since everyone everywhere is selling Christmas trees and poinsettias.

      Sadly, I don’t know the name of that flower. Usually there are little name signs posted everywhere but a lot of them were missing this trip. They were doing a lot of maintenance trimming, pruning, and cleaning, so may the name signs are just down temporarily.

          I’ll report on them if I like them. I don’t always report on things I don’t like. So if you don’t see anything by the first week of January, you’ll know I didn’t like them. However, I did buy them so my initial impression of seeing what other people were doing with them was favorable. So there’s that.
