Steve and I recently spent a weekend afternoon at the San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden, one of our favorite places in SLO and had a picnic using our picnic basket that Helya and Jon got us for our wedding..finally! Yay! We've been to the garden before (we love Botanical gardens!) but this time they had two flowers that blew my mind. The first flower, the puya alpestris, a native of Chile, had the most stunning color. It was a shade of blue that you don't normally find in nature...like those flowers you see around St. Patrick's day that are dyed green. But, oh no, there is no dye in these babies. Just pure blue beauty!
My other favorite flower was the leopard flower. This flower is just plain cool.
