Went to the Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens when we went to Santa Barbara for a concert a few weeks ago. It was gorgeous. It’s all native plants and tucked up way back in the hills.
I really liked the meadow garden. I’ve never successfully grown lupines.
These always look like a bush covered with crumpled handkerchiefs.
We picked the perfect time to go. We had been going to go on Sunday, before the concert, but we really didn’t have time so we went on Monday before we went home. It was early in the day and there very few other people there.
We ran into some residents.
They had a redwood grove, planted when the park was new.
Pretty, but don’t touch.
I really enjoyed it and it was the perfect time of year to go. It seemed like everything was in bloom.
And of course I came home with a few new plants. Only three this time.
