Sun 01.23.11 – If winter has you down, go visit the Huntington Library & Gardens in San Marino, Caliornia, as this second to the last weekend in January was it was bright, sunny, and quite warm at 82F (27.7C). The most glorious part of this time of year, particularly after all the rains in December plus the warm weather of the last two weeks, is how many of the camellias were already in full-bloom and quite a few of the Asian fruit trees in the Japanese and Chinese gardens were putting on a show in time for the upcoming new year.
Today was a lovely day to visit the gardens. All photos taken by Ms. Jen with her Nokia N8.
