FUN in LA: The Huntington Part 2
We went back to the Huntington! It turned out that we happened to go on day 2 of the Camellia Show, so they had camellias for sale outside and inside they had the winning camellias on display.
They were all so beautiful! I had no idea there was so much variation within the species, it was incredible to see the differences in size and petal shape.
After we left the camellias we popped into the greenhouses, and eventually we made our way over to the Chinese garden, which we had missed last time.
The customary shot of the back of my mom's head.
We also walked through the Children's garden, which we had never seen before! It may be built for children, but everything was just my size.
It was the perfect day for a garden stroll! It was so nice to be outside enjoying the clouds and the slight chill. I know people living in places that get a real winter probably think I'm crazy, but there's no fun in 80 degree days in January/February, so I relish the few cloudy days we get.
I can't wait to go back! I'm seriously considering getting a membership. There's always something new to see!
