Zen Garden

When I go to LA I love the drive to Pasadena for lunch or just to go and enjoy the art and gardens at the Huntington Library. If you've never heard of it I'd recommend you to go and check their website to discover more about it.

Views of the Japanese Garden

This time I rushed over the the Japanese Garden to see if the plum and cherry trees have blossomed. And they had. It's not like in DC but at least you get little taste of it.

Calming waterfall and bamboo entrance

The whole area of the garden is very peaceful with little ponds with koi, bridges, and very tall bamboo that moves with the wind.

Plum blossoms

I wish I could have stayed there the whole day!
