Sherman Library and Gardens

Yesterday I went with a friend to Sherman Library and Gardens in Corona Del Mar.  We left the gray, drizzly foothills and an hour or so later were down in the sunshine near the beach.  It was a gorgeous day.  Neither of us had ever been there and we were pleasantly surprised at the scope of the gardens for its size.  It is located right off Pacific Coast Highway in a lovely area of Corona Del Mar not far from the beach in a residential/business district.  They also have a lovely gift shop!

We then had a wonderful lunch at Bristol Farms and made one more stop at Rogers Gardens which is amazing!  I definitely want to go back around Christmas - they have an extensive selection of gorgeous Christmas ornaments by Christopher Radko, Debbee Thibault and others, and were putting out Easter items yesterday.  Their selection of plants, trees, etc. is like none I've ever seen. 

We then made the drive home in our "wonderful" LA-Friday afternoon traffic; our least favorite part of the day, but so worth it!

What a beautiful day! I thought you were having awful weather down there. The news media talks like all the rain is sliding all of L.A. into the Ocean.
Lovely photos. I would love to see this someday.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I looked at your "Irish Eyes Charm Bracelet" on Etsy and it is wonderful! Good luck with the Ice Resin. You won't have any problems with it, it works really well!

Thanks for coming by Susan, I am so sorry I haven't been here for a while. Life just seemed to get in my way! I hope you are doing well. Oh, and I LOVE the Irish eyes charm bracelet. Very very nice!
