The Gamble Garden
While on a business trip to Palo Alto, California, I had a few moments to myself (a very few!), so I made a visit to the Elizabeth F. Gamble Garden. What a lovely place! I must have picked the perfect day for a visit, because it was sunny, everything was in bloom, and they were even having an open house and plant sale! (Although I couldn’t buy any plants, as I was on my way to the airport for a cross-country journey back to NY).
How lovely to see spring so much further ahead than it is here. A few gorgeous pics:
View from Waverley Avenue
stunning calla lily
Delphiniums. I love delphiniums!
I love the way the flecks of orange in the irises pick up the orange of the poppies.
Formal garden with palm tree
The wisteria garden was in full bloom.
A whimsical bunny to please the children (or the child in all of us).
Lest we get too enthralled by the sheer perfection of this garden, a little munching creature brought it all back to earth
What a lovely place to stop on my way to the airport. Lots of fresh air, beautiful flowers, and warm sun before hours spent like a sardine on a plane.
