Huntington Gardens

I had the opportunity to take the kids to Huntington Gardens last week.  Let me just say, it was gorgeous!  It was so peaceful there, as peaceful as it can be with two children vying for my attention.  I love the beautiful flowers all over and the smell of the roses.    

The Japanese garden was probably my favorite.  It looked like a dream.  I'm still amazed at the talent some people have in their abilities to landscape like that.

I don't think I will ever get used to seeing lemons, limes, and oranges growing on trees around here.  I had to sit at this little tree and stare at the fruit on it.  I'll admit, I wanted to yank one off and take it home with me.  No, I didn't do that.  I'm not that horrible.  

I hope to make it back to the gardens again in the near future.  What a treasure!
