Mendocino Coast Botanical Garden Part 1


Well, yes, this post is part 1. The garden is 47 acres of beautiful and serene, of organic and aromatic, of verdant and mysterious. I loved my visit here and to think I wasn't keen on visiting. Gardens are not on top of my must-see list when I visit a place, but I'm glad that I was persuaded to check it out.



The acreage is subdivided into many different gardens of interests, to name a few: Perennial Garden, Heaths and Heather Garden, Camelias, Succulents, Mediterranean Garden, Rhododendrons, Native Plants, Dahlias, Vegetable and Garden Orchard, Heritage Rose Garden.


There is even a miniature version of the hotel we were staying at the garden.


Sign that says easy 1/2 mile walk to the ocean bluffs wherein you get to pass varied landscape.

The scene just after the entrance is already splendid.










It's a botanical garden so let me show you some flower shots:












There is also this unfamiliar fir that looks so beautiful with its cone upright like a flower.

You bet I took a thousand photos in the garden that is why I'm posting this in batches, but you can always scroll left or right from any image here. It's a new thing that Flick'r is (I hope) experimenting with. Personally, I don't like it.

  2. A big chunk of the world is knee deep in snow so it is really nice to have a brief glimpse of summer just to remember what it looks like. :)

  9. Hi Maria, that's a stunning garden! There are lots of gorgeous flowers that I have not seen before. The rare fir cones look incredible. Your photos are just lovely. Can't wait to see the part 2.

  10. Very beautiful garden, intensified by your photos. That is one thing lacking here, a wide and beautiful botanical garden. If only i have the money i will convert our property to one, haha! Flickr photos are really so beautiful, their programs make photos even more beautiful. I wonder why i stopped using it after getting a DSLR, lol.
