Finally the Huntington again

After our abortive attempt to visit the Huntington Gardens a few Tuesdays back, we did re-plan and spent a lovely Sunday in the winter sunshine exploring this beautiful garden. It was a similar time of the year when we first visited and back then, we were mesmerized by the massed color from flowering aloes in the Desert Garden. Once again we weren't disappointed. Apologies for not getting the names of them. There are so many, that I just couldn't resist taking lots of pictures.

Aloe petricola

There were of course many other lovely plants flowering in this garden. It was great to see temperate plants such as Mahonia and Magnolia, reminding me of gardens back home in the UK. I miss the plants but not the UK weather.
