Botanic Gardens

Last week Dan and I rode bikes up to the Ranch Santa Ana Botanic Garden for a special butterfly exhibit featuring music, drinks and access to the garden past normal business hours.

 We had a wonderful stroll through part of the 86 acre park. These gardens feature California native plants. We were lucky enough to happen upon the beautiful "Majestic Oak" that is over 250 years old.

We didn't take Annie with us on our adventure and it's probably a good thing we didn't as she might have taken off after a desert hare and ended up in a Cactus bush!
