    The Gardens are donning their fall finery as acorns drop, berries ripen and camellias start to bloom again. In the beautiful Japanese Garden each day brings a surprise of flowering. The creamy buckwheat flowers in the Natives Garden are turning red, as are the prickly pears on the opuntia cactu. Of course you shouldn't miss the fall pumpkins as they turn fat and deep orange. These amazing gardens are in a secluded "natural bowl" setting in the San Rafael hills. Drive out and browse to your hearts content.

    Located in the suburban area of LA in La Canada Flintridge, a really beautiful and large gardens, worth a visit, we took my Mom there on one of her visits to LA and she just loved it, she is wheelchair bound for most part and it was easy to maneuver around the gardens with a wheelchair.
