We Easterners currently live in NM where lots of cactus grow, including in our own yard. My husband visited here years ago and couldn't wait to go back. Today we finally made it and the Desert Gardens was absolutely amazing. The variety was astounding. Many were in bloom which made this particular garden very special.

The Huntington is one of THE best attractions in the entire LA area. Gardens, Museum and Library are amazing. We try to spend some time here every time we visit the LA area.

If you take a volunteer tour this is a good introduction to the different regions and an opportunity to get a taster before then exploring more at length.So much variety and opportunities to look at plants in depth.
