I just can't help continuing to post my photos from the Mendocino County Botanical Gardens. So here's another close up taken on that wonderful trip.

A Rose is A Rose

Remember last Monday when I said I'd be posting at least a weeks' worth of photos from the Mendocino County Botanical Gardens, the Garden by the Sea? Well, this is the eigth one, and I'm still growing strong.

I'm partial to roses. It must have something to do with living two blocks away from Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena. But the rose garden at Mendocino was not very photographable, at least in my opinion. This, however, was nice.

For Mom

I spoke with my mom last night, and she said she's been looking at these photos from Mendocino County Botanical Gardens daily and loves them. So this is for her.

An Overview

This is probably the widest view that I took from within the Menodocino County Botanical Gardens. It gives a pretty good overview of the gardens area that is closest to the Pacific Coast Highway and the entrance. As you can tell, this area is overwhelmingly beautiful, and well worth a return trip sometime!

Botanical Gardens Hillside

Another from Mendocino Botanical Gardens, showing the hillside where the continent ends and the ocean begins.

Mendocino Gardens on the Coast

If you have looked at the link posted on Monday to the Mendocino County Botanical Gardens, you will notice that it is also called the Gardens By the Sea. This expansive garden is located between the Pacific Coast Highway (California Route 1) and the Pacific Ocean. It covers a great distance from the Gardens' entrance to the edge of the ocean, and the walk is wonderful. But views like this through the gardens and tress to the ocean make the anticipation of the ocean's edge all the more wonderful.

More Mendocino

As promised, another today from the Mendocino County Botanical Gardens. This one is higher resolution than normal for me on my blog. I left it that way because as I lowered the resolution to where I normally would save it to, the flowers just became way too fuzzy. So higher resolution and added a "copyright" line. Hope you enjoy it.

Mendocino County Botanical Gardens

Around six weeks or so ago, I visited the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens in Fort Bragg, California with Julie and her family. This place was incredible. I took about 70 photos that day. My normal 1 in 10 ratio of good shots was dramatically increased at the Gardens, only because of how incredibly beautiful the whole, huge area is. It was hard NOT to get a good shot.

Today will be the first of a multitude of shots that I post from there. I will post one each day for the remainder of the week, all from these Gardens.
