Having seen the glass dome from the freeway for years, I had no idea this 7 acre public garden was so beautiful, interesting and educational. Reed and I enjoyed our visit so much even though it was a 90 degree day and even hotter in the greenhouse and the tropical gardens.
FYI – this is the second time I’ve tried to post these pictures. The first time I captioned each and every one of them. This time I’m taking no chances.
There was a big orchid area – part of the succulent family.
Also a big cactus garden where I saw this pencil tree – mine is nearly this big!
Then we stepped outside to view a Bonsai display.
Gingko biloba – in training since 1865. No kidding, no typo – it said 1865!
Moving on outside where two weddings were taking place – I’ll bet they were hot in their formal clothes.
That waterfall looked good enough to jump in.
We want to go back in the winter when we can enjoy the greenhouse and dome’s warmth and humidity.
Pictures from Connie and the cruise……
Class with Tula Pink.
Happy Anniversary to Roy and Connie today!
Tomorrow I will show each plant I brought home and the proper name.
