The Huntington Library and Gardens is located in San Marino,
California which is neighboring Pasadena, California. Over 207 acres of
gardens and art galleries. Closed Tuesdays. Open 10:30-4:30 summer months.
All the following photos were taken in the Huntington Gallery which is the
building that houses the European art. It is located on the walk way to the
rose garden. I will be posting the rose garden next post. Mon amour and I
went here yesterday and I couldn't wait to share this with you.
I can't resist a beautiful chandelier. This one was made in 1832 in England.
Amazing stained glass window. This is easy to miss. I almost did.
"View on the Stour near Dedham"
Everything inside is taken without a flash. I really got lucky with my cheap little camera.
"The Blue Boy"
Bust of George Washington just recently found in the basement.
Something a little shabby chic. "Cherub In The Roses"
Walking the grounds of the Huntington Library
Lots of statues everywhere
Magnificent displays of colorful flowers
Temple of Love
The grounds are huge. This is just a very small sampling of walking around the
Huntington. They have a dozen different gardens which includes the rose garden.
They have a Chinese garden, Japanese garden, Austrailian garden, desert garden,
Lily ponds, and Children's garden among them. The Japanese garden is under
construction and will re-open in April of 2012.
Front entrance taken from the parking lot. Parking is free.
