San Diego Botanic Garden

This week we met up with our good friends in S.D. County and went to the beautiful San Diego Botanic Garden. We visited the Mexican Garden, the Bamboo Garden and Pond, the Herb Garden, the African Garden, the Tropical Rain Forest and Waterfall, the Subtropical Fruit Garden, the California Gardenscapes, and the Children's Garden. Such an incredible place; we could have spent the entire day there and still not seen all of the gardens.

Allie's favorite was the Bamboo Garden, "There were tons of really tall bamboo and bamboo that was red and yellow. It felt like China".

Micayla's favorite was the Mexican Garden. She liked the fountain, the topiary mariachis, and all of the succulents like the agave and aloe vera plants.

Carly liked the Tropical Rain Forest and Waterfall because, "it was really pretty, and really big with lots of lush tropical plants".

Nate loved the Children's Garden where there was a huge tree house, musical instruments to play, and Indian storytelling.

And we all loved the Subtropical Fruit Garden where there were papaya, guava, guava-pineapple, apricot, orange, lychee, peach, olive, avocado, lemon, and a variety of banana trees.

This is definitely a place we'd like to visit again. Many thanks to the Kaihatu family for sharing one of San Diego's treasures with us.
