Moss Monday: UC Botanical Garden at Berkeley

A snapped this picture last July in one of the amazing greenhouses at the UC Botanical Garden at Berkeley.  This small botanical garden is perched on the mountains behind the main campus and they sure do have a spectacular array of plants in such a small area of land.  I expected to see it all in less than two hours when I could have easily spent half the day in the three small but wonderful greenhouses and the rest of the afternoon enjoying the terraced gardens catching the lovely bay breeze. I'm heading back with a proper camera next time!

  2. 100+ most charming sunset HD scenery you love most

    NO MATTER how often we see a beautiful sunset, we always appreciate the glorious scenery. Clouds scattered across the horizon add to the beautiful scenery as the sun sets with purple, red, orange, pink, and yellow.

    On a clear day when the sun is above the horizon, the sky is blue because shorter blue waves are scattered in the air and reflected to the earth from all parts of the sky. But when the sun sets on the night sky, its light travels many miles beyond the earth's atmosphere to reach us. So it hits more air and dust molecules than when the sun is up. Shorter blue rays are blocked and absorbed by the atmosphere before they reach our sight.

    Longer red rays penetrate the atmosphere to reach us, causing the colors we see at sunset and sunrise.
