Lotus Land Visit

Returned from my trip to Malibu...
Not sure I will get over the grand time.

Did you know that a person can release "Endorphins" from laughter?

We made many stops that I will be posting this week on highlights.
I did not even know this place existed,
Santa Barbara, California.
Imagine 37 acres of botanical wonders.
Rare cycads
ferns, aloes, succulents, lotuses, waterlilies and bromeliads

Theme gardens:
Blue garden
Theatre garden
Butterfly garden
Japanese Garden

Learn the history of how it was developed by, 
Madame Ganna Walska

That lotus is SO beautiful, absolutely fantastic. It is kind of graphic, everything is so in good order.
