The Huntington was the last garden we saw before we came home. They had termites on display and one display was about how orchids mimic insects to get pollinated by pseudocopulation. The children's garden was was fun, even though we had no children. The wire house covered with vines was lovely. And they had some water features designed to keep the kids cool on hot summer days. It was really crowded. It was Saturday, and even though we arrived at opening time, the parking lot was almost full because they were having a plant sale the same day.
The roses were really pretty. And so were the rest of the flowers.
We had to go inside at least one museum. We picked the right one, because it had vintage light bulbs in a very artistic display, perfect for an energy engineer.
