I am posting today from the Sherman Library and Gardens in
Corona Del Mar, California. I have been here before but
today I took photos of some different but extraordinary flowers
and plants. Enjoy.
This is a Desert Orchid
So many beautiful exotic plants. I was moving too fast to get the names of
the flowers and plants. It was 90 degrees there today. I couldn't
believe the heat, because I was only blocks
from the beach.
This had a sign on it that said simply "Chocolate Scented Orchids". I never
heard of a such a thing. The scent wasn't clear to me because of all the
other interrupting scents of the plants nearby.
This was so pretty to me. I thought it looked like a painting.
This is the "Diana Princess of Wales" rose.
"Plum Crazy" rose.
Another "Desert Orchid"
These seemed so sweet and perfect. I had to take this shot.
In the atrium. It was 20 degrees hotter and very steamy in the atrium.
Looking from the cafe to the atrium.
I try to catch a shot of bees when I can.
Do you see the turtles basking in the background?
The Sherman Library and Gardens is on Pacific
Coast Highway in Corona Del Mar south of
Newport Beach. There is free parking and an
entry fee of $3.00 for each adult.
