No matter where you live, you can find a place to enjoy the gorgeous flowers of spring.
Spring has arrived! What could be a better way to celebrate than admiring the breathtaking blooms in your community? Whether your city or town has a botanical garden, wildflower center, or just some pretty flowers at the park, this is the time to stop and smell the roses, literally. It may sound kind of dull or old-fashioned, but I assure you that taking a break from your hectic week to admire natural beauty can be the refreshing escape you need. And, as you probably already know, April is Earth month, so get out there and enjoy everything that creation has to offer. If nothing else, it could be a great time to reflect on what you can do to make this world a more beautiful place.
Here are a few great options:

Furthermore, the gardens are attached to the acclaimed Huntington Library and Art Collections, so the beauty intake is endless. To celebrate spring, we’re headed there ASAP.
