Exploring the Huntington, 1

A week or two ago, I took a spontaneous day off work (that’s called playing hooky), and visited the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens in San Marino. I became a member last year, when Stinky was on display (link to post here), and was overdue for another visit. The day was perfect, cool and overcast. The Huntington has a brand new entrance, gift shop, meeting halls, and restaurant, all very beautiful! I took over 400 photos during my visit and will show you (many) over the course of several posts. This first gallery starts with the new entrance, enters into the desert exhibit, showcases a very well-disguised rabbit among the cacti, and ends with a touch of brilliant color. ~SueBee

    Now that I’m (kinda) settled in, I need to renew my Huntington membership. Especially since my partner is retired as of tomorrow, and we can visit weekdays when there are fewer people. I enjoyed your choice of the desert garden — I have always been astonished at how many birds there are working the cacti! Good catch on the bunny.

      I’ll surely be renewing mine, too. It’s so nice on a weekday. How are you both liking Inland Empire?

        We absolutely love it here, and I never dreamed that I would like it so much. Our house is in North Upland, and the lots around here are larger than I’m used to. It is so much less densely populated than Eagle Rock. As a result, I think the people here are less stressed. Funny, but this house is much bigger than the previous one, and the cats are much less stressed. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

        So glad to hear that! When I was a kid, some eons ago, my folks nearly bought in Upland when we were selling our Eagle Rock house. We ended up in La Crescenta. I think the large lots add to a less stressful environment. Very nice!
