Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden
On March 12, I had the pleasure of visiting the premier native botanic garden in the Los Angeles area, on a beautiful sunny day. The nearby snow-capped peaks were framed by large trees and flowering shrubs.
Many gardening ideas jumped out from all corners of the garden. The container garden exhibit included this great hybrid Monkeyflower spilling out of a very large pot.
Thank you, this is lovely
Good photos from Laura!
Thanks, Dan – fun to see Ruby Silver again after Barbara Eisenstein’s talk last night, eh?
I was a child in Claremont before we moved east.
There is (was) a beehive in the Botanic Garden (in a large oak trunk) that has been there for hundreds of years.
Last time i visited was an early May with 99 degree temperatures.
