Bouquets to Art 2013, a set on Flickr.
Thursday, March 21, 2013
I enjoyed a gorgeous day off in the city today, finally getting back to see the annual "Bouquets to Art" exhibit, which I have missed for a few years. It runs through Sunday, so you have a few more days to catch it before the blooms fade...
My mother is the President of her Garden Club in Connecticut, and I have fond memories of visiting the show with her, as well as with artist friends. This time, I was solo, but that was probably for the best as it is so much more crowded than when I started coming to see the show! (See my 2009 photos, here) It was a sea of people with cameras and iPhones, and I was squeaking my way through the cracks, just waiting my turn to snap a few pics myself.
I hope you enjoy the selection I chose as "The Best of 2013". I have added into the comments the descriptions that were with most of the pieces.
My day ended with a political celebrity spotting... I saw the Prime Minister of Ireland, Enda Kenny and the entire SFPD motorcade up above Lands End. It was amazing! I snapped a few shots, but they don't do the moment justice. A fun day in the city! Can't wait to get back.
