Spring is at the Getty Gardens

Recently, I visited the Getty with a friend. The Getty is not only an excellent museum that is free to the public (parking is not),  they have an excellent garden. Spring has definitely arrived, and the flowers are all in bloom!

They sell a book at the bookstore that talks about the making of the gardens and has all the identification of the plants with culture information. Plants in the Getty’s Central Garden.

The hardscape is also very interesting. This is the flower maze/hedge that sits in the pool that the waterfall empties into.

I especially like the bougainvilleas that they planted inside tree like trellises. They hang down at the top. They look like old specimens as the trunks are quite thick. They also have a side succulent garden that you don’t walk into, but you can see it from the balconies in the museum.

Overall, it’s a wonder place to visit if you ever make a trip to Los Angeles California.
