What's Blooming at the Los Angeles County
Arboretum



April 2008

I have had a wonderful time visiting the Arboretum on a weekly basis, something that has allowed me to get to know every road, trail, corner, garden, and greenhouse, and it has been especially interesting to observe how the Arboretum has reacted to the punches thrown at it by Mother Nature. Perhaps I'll come back in years to come to enjoy and photograph new species, but for the time being this is the end of this gallery. I hope that those who have viewed these pages will appreciate the tremendous work done by the Arboretum staff and will be inspired to spend time there as I have.
