The Huntington Library

Yesterday, based on a great tip from another blogger at FrenchGardenHouse, my wife and I visited for the first time the Huntington Library Botanic Gardens, over near Pasadena.

One word – WOW! It’s a huge complex with a Cactus Garden, a Japanese Garden, a Chinese Garden, a Lily Pond Garden, and indoor Rain Forest Garden, an Herb Garden, a Rose Garden – and much more. It’s $20 per adult to get in (well worth it in my opinion), or you can buy a 2-adult membership for $100 per year. It’s open 10:30-4:30 (that’s the only downside, not the best lighting for photography).We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and highly recommend it for anyone local here in LA or anyone planning a trip.

Meantime, I’ll be posting some new pics from the garden here, on my site, and on some of my other pages as well. Keep an eye out for some exotic flowers, cactus, lotus, and more. Thanks again for the awesome tip!

Hi Paul,

Thanks for stopping by.
The books are a wonderful read.

I see you are in MDR. When I first moved to Ca in 1975 (ouch), I lived in Marina Del Rey. Is Boys Market still there?

Take care,

Barb

Thanks for the visit! The faux treats are fun! The problem is they make you want to buy baked goods. :-(

Sorry, I'm a bit late to thank you for visiting my blog and leaving me such nice compliments. I was surprised, you know, my pictures have merely one goal and that is to show what I'm talking about. I don't do the closer-closest up that is now sooo en vogue in blogland, so I was quite surprised that you made me a compliment.
What I do like is to make pictures and giving them a title that is a tad unexpected. In Miami I took a pic of three marine men and I wrote as an underline: Americans like to dress the same. I'm off to see your pics! Thanks again!
