Wordless Wednesday - Huntington Library Japanese Gardens - September 19, 2012


Just a few photos of our day trip to The Huntington in San Marino, CA.  We visited the Japanese Garden area with my daughter's Aikido club.

A private, nonprofit institution, The Huntington was founded in 1919 by Henry E. Huntington, an exceptional businessman who built a financial empire that included railroad companies, utilities, and real estate holdings in Southern California.
The botanical gardens were part of Huntington's Estate.  In the former home of Huntington, there is quite an art gallery that includes Thomas Gainsborough’s Blue Boy.  We just visited the Japanese Garden section of the vast estate.
