I just returned from an amazing bus tour organized by the APLD Phoenix district….and I am still dreaming of all the stunning sights. I thought I would share some of the images that I found inspiring. Our first stop was in Palm Springs for a tour of the newly opened Sunnylands gardens. We visited the modern gardens on this trip. I will definitely be back for the tour of the original home and grounds.
We then carried on to Pasadena and hit the Huntington Gardens for two days. The real treat was the three hours that the Director of the Gardens spent with us…discussing all the thought behind preservation decisions and the history of the gardens. We also were able to enter the garden before the general public both days…and were able to truly take in the beauty and serenity of the space. This will be a trip I will never forget! Thank you APLD for bringing these experiences into my life! We are already planning the bus tour for next year!
