A Visit to Huntington Gardens, Pasadena, CA
This past weekend we made our third visit to the gorgeous Huntington Gardens in Pasadena, a short drive from West LA we were staying (30-40 minutes). The blindingly bright sunlight on Saturday made for a lovely day of strolling but also some very sharply contrasted photographs - be warned! This extraordinary collection of botanical gardens can take you around the world, from the California desert to Japan, China and even Australia. Similarly the visitors to the gardens come from all over and for good reason - this is a truly special spot for plant lovers.
Full disclosure, some of the desert garden shots were taken from a visit in early 2016 where the spring colors were just starting to bloom and were sharing a display that we weren't as lucky to see during this recent trip.
