Can you see the hairs on the legs of the little green spider?
Sorry, I didn't get the name of this rose. I had mon amour with me
with a little note pad and pen. I hope we got the rest right. The garden has
1800 different rose plants in it. This is just a fraction. I was in seventh heaven.
I almost spent the whole time in the rose garden. The library grounds covers
over 200 acres.Huntington Library and Gardens is located in San Marino,
California next door to Pasadena, California. The admission fee is $15.00
during the week. Closed on Tuesdays.

A shot of a small section of the rose garden. This is the most amazing place.
This was my first time. I can't believe I've lived here all my life
and missed this. What is new since 2008 is the overhead spot lighting in the
Euopean gallery so when you take a photo in that building without a flash there
is a better chance of it turning out. This is an hour's drive from where we live.
We arrived at 11:00am. We were two hours in the rose garden.
and two hours in the gallery. We took a free tram tour of the grounds.
The grounds always close at 4:30pm. We had lunch in the cafe, one of three places to
eat at the Huntington. No picnics allowed.
