I'm not a big fan of the heat, but I do love desert plants. Yesterday the Toot and I went to the Huntington Gardens on their free day. There's a whole procedure that we have to go through to get tickets for their one day of the month that we can get in for free. Well, I got tickets a month ago for yesterday and the Toot and I went on our own this time. I usually get five tickets and invite three friends or a relative to come along, but not this time. I wanted to take my time and walk a little more than usual. All their gardens are amazing and I especially enjoy their desert gardens. The Toot is also a little more easygoing so I was able to take some photos.
Lovely landscape. I could easily stand there and get lost in the varieties, textures and shapes. The colors are a pallete I'm comfortable with and it would be nice to someday have a garden like this. Someday!
The flies were attracted to this flower. It's probably an insect eating plant. There were some carcasses in this one.
There's a little frog at the bottom left in the small pool of water. This was a nice surprise when I looked closer at the photo after downloading.
