Fun and Flowers at Balboa Park!

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, this week the theme is Fun and/or Flowers.  In April, after our Panama Canal Cruise, we spent two extra days in San Diego.  Visiting the Zoo was a must (I had to see the koalas and pandas!) and Balboa Park also has lovely flower gardens. Here are some highlights of both FUN and FLOWERS in Balboa Park!

I love this orangutan granddaddy’s expression!

These two trees were at the botanic gardens in Balboa Park. I am including them under “Fun” because they are unusual and interesting!

Most of the flowers we saw were at the rose gardens.

I don’t know that lovely woman whose head appears among the flowers, but I think she fits quite nicely into the picture, don’t you?
