Balboa Park

The BF and I were in San Diego to see his friends and fit in a quick visit to Balboa Park. Click here for the rest of the photos, many of which are of the botanical garden. (more…)

Chicago Botanic Garden

I can’t believe I only went here — the 385 acre Chicago Botanic Garden — one time. It has a rose garden, a Japanese garden, and MUCH  more. You can see its wikipedia page for a good overview. If you’re in the area, you need to go! (more…)

UCLA Campus, Botanical Garden

Today’s photos [check them out here!] are of UCLA‘s campus and Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden [official site, wikipedia, yelp, tripadvisor]. The crazy thing about the botanical garden (“one of the most important living botanical collections in the United States”) is that most students seem never to have visited it. Who wouldn’t want to go peek at some turtles between classes?

The album contains photos taken on five different days: The campus photos were taken in Sep. & Oct. 2008 and the three visits to the botanical garden were in Oct. & Nov. 2008, and Apr. 2009).
