The plantings were simple and tough, but very lovely.
Other features included steam, mist and hiding places.
All in all, a really fun and cool looking children's garden. The only lame part was when twice I saw workers telling kids to quit splashing water from out of the water features. Kind of uptight for a children's garden, no?
We also had a great time exploring the plantings around the main lawn area. The unpruned cedars created such an amazing space.
And who can resist a giant grove of bamboo?
There are a lot of neoclassical and romantic parts of the garden too.
The mansion is impressively luxurious - crisp, white and formal contrasting with its tropical setting.
The Conservatory was quite an eyeful too. There were lots of educational exhibits that were engaging for kids and adults alike.
I love this Polygonum(?). I wonder if it can grow outside here?
With so many excellent features, the Huntington definitely has something to thrill everyone. There were many parts of the I didn't get a chance to see, I'm definitely going to have to go back.
