Happy New Year!
My mom and I went out to the Huntington Library a few days ago. It was a bit crowded for my taste, (I'm guessing all the folks who come out for the rose bowl/parade have to do something else before they leave town) but I'm planning on going back soon; the camellias are on the verge of blooming like crazy all over the gardens. I'm also thinking of planting a couple of camellias in my own garden.
We also found a beautiful (although sad and sorta creepy) pomegranate tree that had lost its leaves for the season, but still had some dry, bird-eaten pomegranates on it. Lovely!
We overheard an excited little boy who summed up the experience of the Huntington Gardens well: "I never know nature could be so fun!!"
