Earlier this year my parents invited me to go along to Huntington Gardens, this time to attend a special show and sale for members of Cactus and Succulent clubs.
It turned out to be an excellent photo opportunity as a great deal of the aloes and cacti were in bloom.
There were special tours of the succulent greenhouses which my Dad really enjoyed and even some for sale so we had to load up the car for the trip home.
The rest of the gardens were wonderful as all ways and we enjoyed lunch over by the Chinese gardens at the tea house.
Also we got to see the fruit of Titan arum, the giant flower that apparently only rarely sets fruit so this was a neat thing to see. the giant red cluster was very impressive.
We also admired some of the planned expansions for the already impressive Chinese Garden before heading for home. I look forward to returning to visit “The Huntington” again.
