Our friend Jeanne Cronce of Port Orchard, WA, shares her unique photos with us from her recent visit to the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens.

"I, Jeanne Cronce from rainy Washington had a wonderful time in Calfornia with two wonderdul ladies visiting the Huntington Library and Botanical gardens.  The 85 degree sun helped dry me out and got me excited about what is to come in my gardens. This place has to be seen more than just one day. We only seen a small portion and to me it was beauty overload!"
