Quarryhill Botanical Garden (Glen Ellen, CA)

Quarryhill Botanical Garden was the first stop on our California trek. Located in Glen Ellen (CA) it is one of the pre-eminent Asian botanical gardens in the United States. If you have not heard of it, be sure to check out the link above. I would have written more, but this trip is keeping me very busy.

Enjoy the images below and I am so sorry there are not more at this time. We were talking a lot to a friend of my husband's about all kinds of wine vine, plant, and horticultural topics so my mind was happily swimming in the mire of words when I should have been snapping pictures.

  1. Wonderful photos. I'm jealous. A number of the more interesting plants in the Asian Collection at the USNA came via Quarryhill.

  2. Enjoy your trip and I'll enjoy the photos. Thank you for sharing.
