One of the highlights of April was going to the Huntington Library with my mom and grandma. They've been raving about this place for some time, so we made it a goal to all go together. It's the perfect place for us to day trip to. This particular day though was unbearably hot, so we couldn't cover that many gardens. I didn't even have the energy to read about what plants I was looking at or the history or anything. My mom held up well in the heat, but my grandma and I were mostly concerned with getting to the next shady spot. Overheated or not, it was nice to celebrate the season by going to such epic garden exhibits. My favorite parts were the furry beauties of the desert garden and the Japanese garden because it's calm and manicured.
