I recently visited the Huntington Library, its filled with beautiful gardens none of which are the same. Here are some pictures I took of the Japanese Garden. It has been quite a while since my last visit and better than I remember.
There are volunteers who help with the upkeep of the grounds and the friendliest docents who are so knowledgeable and can direct you to which ever part of the museum/gardens you wish to see.
We had tea in the Tea Room and I consider myself a loyal coffee drinker, but I found myself swayed by the lovely selections of tea they had to offer.
The Tea Room
I found this to be a very tranquil garden and could easily spend hours reading our indulging in my love of photography. There are benches to relax on or if you prefer (which we did) you can sit on the grass and just catch up with friends.
