During our annual winter road trip this January, I was lucky enough to enjoy a morning at one of my favorite botanical gardens: Huntington Library, Art Gallery and Gardens in Pasedena, CA.
The Japanese Garden is peaceful and stunning.
I love these patterns!
...and the colors.
And then you wander through to the Bonsai Garden, where miniature gardens are works of art.
In the Desert Garden, the plants have their own space-heaters in case the temperatures dip.
Houseplants that could eat you for breakfast.
A dramatic rill at the main entrance pulls you into the gardens.
