Today my friend Linda and I went to Descanso Gardens in La Canada, CA. There were not really a lot of flowers blooming yet, but it was still pretty. We saw a few daffodils and some irises. I love the "green" area with all the big oak trees and redwood trees. There is also a Japanese Garden where there was a cherry tree, and the cherry blossoms were beautiful. There are also many koi ponds in the gardens. This botanical garden is right in the city, but makes you feel like you are out in the forest.
