This is why I love it here. Camellia
Wisteria at Cal Tech in Pasadena this afternoon.
Pasadena is a tony type of town. From the sweet smelling Rose Parade – to slick and affluent Colorado St. in downtown – to the opulent estates in Old Town. Nearby in San Marino, go for a stroll or spend all day at the massive Huntington Museum and Gardens. The LA Arboretum in Arcadia is close by, as well. If you ever get a chance, these are all great places for a quiet, contemplative and floral visit. Behind every vista; the San Gabriel Mountains stand majestically tall and often with snowcapped peaks. In the immediate vicinity; lush, manicured and splendiferous flower beds, lie underfoot.
