My World Tuesday #7

The Huntington Library & Botanical Gardens is located in Pasadena, California (one of the cities that make up L.A. County). Actually, it's in San Marino but the borderline between where Pasadena ends and San Marino begins is unknown to me so I say Pasadena. I need to go back because on my last trip the library and art gallery were closed. The botanical gardens cover 120 acres and are famous for its numerous gardens like the Chinese, Australian, Japanese and Jungle. You can click here for a map. Sorry about the length of this but there's no way to show this in a couple of photos.


This building is where the art gallery is.

Okay, I have to say it. I am jealous of your botanical garden. Your shots make it look really inviting, especially to a photographer.

P.S. Re your comment on my blog -- Don.t worry. I am really behind on blog visits, too, thanks to holidays, visitors, and a bout with a stomach bug. :-(

Just on the grounds alone would be a good day trip. I like the statues all lined up like that.
