Bonzai tree in The Huntington Gardens, Pasadena, California

Serenity in the Huntington Gardens

In the maelstrom that a metropole like Los Angeles can be, sometimes we find an oasis. The Huntington in Pasadena definitely qualifies, and will always be among my favorite spots. Not only is there amazing art, the gardens are stunning. The Japanese section is famous, and provided me with an opportunity to get more acquainted with bonzai trees. Having never really seen one up close, this collection was quite the revelation, and made for a lovely study subject.
