Let's Go On A garden Tour

Welcome.  I am so happy that you stopped by.  Today I am going to take you with me to have tea at the beautiful Sherman Library and Gardens in the Tea Garden located by one of the lovely fountains and then we will tour the gardens.

The gardens are located in Newport Beach on two acres right off the scenic Pacific Coast Highway and half a mile from the Pacific Ocean, and feature flowers and plants displayed in a beautiful setting of fountains, sculpture and shrubs and lawns. The library features research devoted to the study of the Pacific Southwest since the late 1800's and is a very interesting place to visit.

                              The adorable California sea otter greets visitors to the gardens.






                                  The Rose garden features Roses in all colors and varieties.


Large flower beds and numerous hanging baskets radiate seasonal color and accent the early California architectural theme of the surrounding buildings.
















                                The garden is dotted with beautiful bird sculptures made from drift wood.
































                                    The green house features unusual tropical plants and flowers.











Thank you for stopping by my blog.  I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your e-mails, comments and those following my blog.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

Have a lovely week.  Blessings,  Erin

"The Lord will guide you continually . . . .and you shall be like a watered garden . . . .like a spring of water, whose waters never fail." Isaiah 58:11

I am ashamed to say that I have never been to Sherman Gardens. I seem to always end up at Rogers Gardens. Sherman's is going on my to-see list.
Thank you for all the wonderful photo's that you took. Everything is so lovely and colorful.
Stop by Junk Chic Cottage - I was featured on Saturday.
Have a great week.
Mary
