This place is magical - and huge. The dessert garden section is just spectacular. There is also a Shakespeare Garden that was in full bloom - and glorious!

This is part of the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, so if you go there will be plenty of other things to see. The desert garden really is amazing, with plants from all over the world. I have never seen such an extensive collection of desert plants.
