Signs of spring

February 18, 2014

I recently discovered a great little greenhouse tucked away inside Payless Nursery, East of San Jose. Despite the slightly off-putting name, there is a wonderful selection of specialty and hard-to-find plants, e.g., staghorn ferns (not pictured here), air plants, bonsai from many species, in a variety of shapes and sizes to choose from, special orchids, weeping cherry trees, forsythia, water lily, pink and red camellias, among other typical seasonal landscape offerings like, narcissus, pensi, etc, and one of my favorite things – succulents. I took my Hasselblad with me to test out a newly acquired proxar filter 1.0 m. I love the results, especially the first one – a graceful fern basking in soft diffused light. It might not be Spring in the calendar and elsewhere, but in California, it is.
