Pasadena Touristic: The Huntington Library and Gardens (Part 1): Bonsai

I have many photos to share of my one full tourist day in Pasadena, as I spent most of the day at the Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino. It is quite expensive to get in, so you want to make the most of it. Fortunately there is enough to see both in the gardens and the library that it is well worth the money, assuming you’ve given yourself the entire day to explore it.

I begin with a post dedicated to the section of the Japanese garden that is devoted to bonsai.

When I am retired, I shall build myself one of these, and the carefully placed bench to sit in contemplation of it at precisely the right distance.
