Our trip to the gardens was so nice. Here we are and I don't know what was up with the camera that it didn't flash so it's not a very good pic. I took photos of the Orchids because they were so pretty. We had a volunteer guide that walked around with us and that was nice. We learned more about the history of the place.
They had a large rose garden but we were moving along quickly trying to see as much as we could with the guide so I hesitated taking the time to take more pictures.
They had a Zen garden in the Oriental area and this large space with sand and gravel was all groomed perfect with a rake. It would have been peaceful but there were too many people. It would be better to visit this on a weekday.
I couldn't resist since it is only about 15 min from where I live now, so I became a member. Now I can go anytime I want and I'll have more pics for you in the near future.
