Huntington Gardens

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.

All in all it was a perfect day!
