The Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens – wow, what a treat!

I’ve been waiting for the weather to get warm and the flower to start popping out and we finally went to see the Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens last weekend. I loved the winding paths and all the lush growth. It was amazing to hear and feel the air buzzing with bees.

This is the meadow that greets you when you enter.

I love the backdrop of that mountain behind it.

Succulents are a prominent feature of many gardens – this one is blooming.

This is the forest portion of the garden – lovely on a hot day.

Really, a very nice garden – lots to see and lots of trails meandering through. Definitely worth a visit.
