Yesterday was my mother's birthday, so I decided to take her to the Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge. It really is a beautiful place.
The Descanso Gardens are a enchanting collection of botanical gardens that encompass 160 acres of land. This land contains a variety of gardens (edible, rose, Japanese, etc), woodlands and forests, and chaparrals that sit and grow just wanting to be wondered and explored.
I took a ton of photos and thought I'd share them with all of you, so below you'll find a slideshow showcasing the beauty of this wondrous place. The slideshow showcases the beautiful flowers and gardens we encountered, an art exhibit at the Strut Haaga Gallery, and gorgeous terrariums... which have inspired me to want to do a-WHOLE-nother blog in the future. But yes... enjoy!
Hopefully this will inspire you to take the time to visit Descanso Gardens or your local botanical garden. Being one with nature is one of the most blissful things you'll ever experience.
