Garden afternoon in early autumn.
January in Oakland means magnolia season so I have decided to photograph them with my good camera this year. This first tree is a small one near the Gardens of Lake Merritt (which could be also be considered Lakeside park) near the lawn bowling area. It is also the one that I will always remember a little two-year-old Emma saying “look mama, magnolahs!”
Keeping a garden is really tough. But we still love it.
