The Joy of Sunflowers
“I don’t think there’s anything on this planet that more trumpets life than the sunflower. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that’s such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life.” — Helen Mirren.

We visited the 87 acre South Coast Botanic Gardens that has approximately 150,000 landscaped plants and tress from about 140 different families. It's located in the Palos Verdes Hills in the unincorporated area of Los Angeles County. The land was previously used as a diatomite mine, then a landfill and then in 1961 it was reclaimed to transform it into a beautiful garden. Whenever our family needs a little break from the hustle and bustle of urban life we like to check out places like the South Coast Botanic Gardens.

Heritage Rose Garden, San Jose
The San Jose Heritage Rose Garden is an unexpected jewel amid a revitalized downtown San Jose, California; a five-acre rose garden that contains 4,000 plants. How did this happen? In 1987 San Jose Mayor McEnery initiated turning land cleared for airport safety, a weed-infested eyesore, into a central park for San Jose. In 1988, Tom Liggett was approached by Lorrie Freeman, "The Mother of Guadalupe Gardens" and avid rosarian, to develop a competitive proposal for a rose garden in the area. His concept grew from an initial half-acre plot to a full city block. In 1992, Tom's proposal for a San Jose Heritage Rose Garden was selected and funded by the San Jose City Council. Local Councilmember David Pandori steered the garden safely through the political shoals. The Garden is in the shape of a large bowl, the center of which is 5 feet deep. This allows the observer to see every single plant from every place in the garden.
