Society of Botanical Artists at Palmengarten

The SBA exhibition at Palmengarten Botanic Gardens was beautiful. So many stunning works of art. The gallery is in a perfect setting to showcase botanic art. Photography was not allowed in the exhibition, so I thought I would take photographs of the Gardens which were interesting and lovely even at this time of year. It was great to have been part of such a wonderful exhibition.
