Travel: Sherman Library and Botanical Gardens

For more information on the Sherman Library and Botanical Gardens, click here

Though I lived in Orange County, California for many years, I never visited the Sherman Library and Botanical Gardens. But lately I’ve been “into” meandering through gardens so I stopped by on my last trip. What a beautiful place-it’s a little oasis in the sleepy beach town of Corona del Mar

Though the grounds are small (2 acres), they’re magnificent and include a greenhouse, rose garden, herb garden, restaurant and the coolest open stairs I’ve seen with succulents planted between the concrete steps. It’s always amazing to see a confluence of nature, knowledge and a green thumb!
