Huntington Library Botanical Gardens

The Conservatory

Barbara: This week marks the fourth week of my Master Gardener training. So far it’s been an incredible whirlwind of learning. In the last few days we’ve been privileged to hear three of the most amazing botany lectures given by two brilliant teachers; John Lenanton, a professor of Nursery Practices and Horticulture at Orange Coast College, and Dr. Jim Folsom, Director of the Huntington Botanical Gardens.

Boy, can these guys teach! The lectures were crammed full of great stuff. I’m agog with all the information. It’s coming at us like a freight train and I’m loving every minute of it. I have learned SO much  — amazing, magical things. I feel like I’ve been given the keys to the kingdom. And what’s even better, there’s more to come! I’ll be posting some of the nuggets soon.

In the meantime here are a few pictures that I took at the Gardens. For more follow this link to Flickr. And the next time you’re in Southern California make plans to spend the day at the Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino. They are so very beautiful.
