I took a stress reducing visit to the Huntington Library Botanical Gardens last weekend. If you like sticky cactii and over 14,000 different varieties of plants the trip to San Marino is well worth the gas.
This Thursday and every second Thursday is the free garden lecture and plant sale. Their annual spring plant sale is in May. Visit them online at: http://www.huntington.org/huntingtonlibrary.aspx?id=210amp;linkidentifier=idamp;itemid=210
