When my parents came to visit in April we went to visit the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, it was such a nice way to spend the day. Upon entry to the 127 acres of beautiful botanical Gardens, you are greeted by peacocks, dozens of them!
hey there buddy
inspiration for a painting? reminds me of the work of my dear friend Erik Otto
fresh air and bright, open blue skies
The botanical gardens are divided by continent: The Americas, Asia, Africa and Australia, and then by area of interest. Plants from all around the world can be found here, including some that are endangered. You can see a map of the Arboretum and Botanical Gardens here.
look at this stylish crew
so peaceful and serene
so incredibly beautiful that it almost looks fake
the Meyberg Waterfall
i had to get in on the action, too
reminds me of Japan
We also stopped and had lunch at their cafe which has a
beautiful view of the gardens. We had intended to only stay for 2 hours, but ended up staying here for about 4 hours just walking around, exploring and enjoying.
