The Huntington Library

Happy May to all and hope you are enjoying the full bloom!

Today I’m sharing some photos from my recently visit to The Huntington Library in San Marino, LA. It’s my second time exploring this beautiful place and it’s interesting to see the different gardens, e.g. the “Japanese Garden”, the “Desert Garden”, and the “Chinese Garden”, as you walk through the grounds. It feels like you’re entering a different world. It’s impressive and peaceful at the same time.

There’s so much to see, it’s best to take your time and come again to see more. The admission is on the expensive side at $23 for adults, but worth every penny …  We visited during the weekdays when it’s less crowded and allowed us to slow down and enjoy each garden, walk slowly and take photographs. When you get exhausted, find a grassy space under the shade of one of the many voluminous tree. It’s a pleasure to just sit for a moment, take in so many different blooming aromas from the gardens and listen to the water of the ponds. Either that or you’re even welcome to nap. Sounds wonderful no?

Hope you enjoy the images; but it’s a far cry from the real experience! I’ll be back with the part 2 post.
