Thank you so much for your amazing, interesting, and beautiful posts! It is fun to read and give a comment back!
In case I have not been able to reach you last week, I cannot give a comment back unless you have your comments setting is on “anyone” instead of a single google account. Remember, WordPress is a different organization than google:)
This is what I see on my WordPress blog:
Have experimented with a straight url, and with a perma link, but I don’t know what you see on your blog:)
Now about my Season post:
The Huntington is known for the library that contains a large collection of historic and rare books, such as the Gutenberg Bible (famous in Germany – the Latin edition of the Vulgata) , letters and manuscripts of Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Lincoln.
According to Wikipedia the library holds 7 million items, and more than 400,000 rare books. Happen to know that there is a yearly conference of international book experts.
Don’t know if regular visitors can visit the inside of the library, or a pass is needed.
Whenever we make the trip, we come here for the gardens.
The vegetation is of several parts of the earth and never can get enough oftrees, flowers, fountains, and bridges.
The Huntington Library Gardens (Pasadena, CA) is worth every penny of the entrance fee.
Here this red maple stands in the Japanese garden
Huntington Library was developed by one of the 4 railroad tycoons (Henry Edwards Huntington – 1850-1927). This was originally his San Marino Ranch (now, San Marino is a suburb of Pasadena). His interest in art was influenced by his second wife Arabella. On this property is an art gallery, as well as many statues, and fountains.
One of my favorite flowers , the camellia
They have an African, Australian, Chinese, Desert, Japanese, and regular (popular, like roses, camellia, poppies, etc.), rain forest (in building)
Several ponds, fountains , and man made waterfalls
making it very pleasant on hot days.
The only other round bridge (Japanese feature) have seen in California is in San Francisco in the Golden Gate park.
The branches of the funky red tree are bare in winter.
Hope you have a garden close by you can escape on in hot days!
