This blog is inspired by a recent trip to Lotusland in Montecito, California. While wandering through seemingly endless tiers of spectacular gardens, I was awestruck by the beauty of never ending pathways of botanic gardens. Whether you have a green thumb or not, you cannot help but be dazzled by its beauty.
Ganna Walska had purchased the property in 1941 and abandoned her career as an opera singer to tend to her gardens. Her collection of exotic plants displayed throughout the 37 acre estate are incredibly magnificent. True to her character, Walska never did anything by halves and declared herself "an enemy of the average." Que linda!
While it may be impossible to pick just a couple beautiful pictures, here are some of mis favoritas:
Fruit trees are my favorite and here is a perfect way to display them. This lemon arbor could work in a small yard or vast estate.
You don't have to be a child to appreciate these topiaries. Here, lush greenery and architecture fall in love to create this horticultural art.
Viva la vida and do it with ESTILO!
