Photographer's Note

The Japanese Gardens at Descanso Gardens are in full bloom with Cherry Blossoms and camelias. The gardens boast that over 500,000 camelias are planted on the grounds and it surely seeems like it as they are massively high like trees and in abundance growing underneath the oak canopy.
Here we see the cherry blossoms in bloom in the Japanese Garden and in two weeks times the Gardens will host a Cherry Blossom Festival.
