Return to Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens

The last time I went to the Huntington Library was, apparently, over a year ago (March of 2010).  Last time, many of the flowers weren’t in bloom, and I only hit up one of the buildings on the property.  My battery also died half way through the rose garden last year, so you can imagine, I was a little frustrated.  I will say this though, the weather in March is definitely better for walking the entire property.  This year was cut short by lack of stamina, rather than lack of Nikon power cell charge.

One of the pavilions was filled with antique furnishings, including a Frank Llyod Wright table from one of his Illinois homes, and this really fascinating Tiffany lamp.

These roses are called “Julia Child” roses:
