Just Next Door...

San Marino may be the official city of the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, but South Pasadena is so close it feels like our very own backyard garden.

Our very own biiiiiiig backyard garden!

It only takes me about ten minutes to drive there, but once inside it's like being transported to another dimension.

Summer butterflies are fully aflutter in the Rose Garden, the sunflowers are about to bloom in the Children's Garden and the orchids are peeking out among the rocks in the recently renovated Japanese Garden.

I think the name should be changed to The Huntington Oasis.
