Beauty in L.A.

06Apr07

Two weeks after Andrew and I visited the greater Los Angeles area for our anniversary, I thought I’d share some pictures from the highlight of the trip. Here are some shots of the lovely Huntington Botanical Gardens. I absolutely love this place; I love it even more now that we live in Vegas because the gardens offer the one thing we can’t get here: vegetation. Haha! Actually, there are a number of plant species that grow in our yard, but here, the plants are on steroids! Amazing what a little moisture in the air can do for growth.

This garden feels like a little slice of heaven. These pictures don’t do the gardens justice, partly because I’m not a skilled photographer, but mainly because these pictures were taken before I received a Nikon SLR for my b-day (YAR!!) Enjoy the pix!

If you look closely, you can see a bee

Andrew made me pose next to this tree (I look like a dork)

Japanese Teahouse (my favorite part!)
