I was there the week before and there were lots of great flowers, but it was only 25% peak. The day that we went it was at peak! And the weather was great too.
I met weatherman Geoff Fox there. He actually came over and volunteered to hold my reflector for me. He was very friendly, easy to talk to and quite the photographer. He actually took photos of me taking photos (and sent them to me).
Both of these are photos that Geoff took.
