One of my goals for this summer was to get out and do some of the local things that I'd put off doing for some (probably lame) reason or another. Wandering around The Huntington, a library/collection of art galleries/botanical gardens, was definitely up there on the list. This little adventure was the perfect cure for some lacking inspiration; I mean how can you not be obsessed with a place in CA that features colors other than brown?! Walking through the desert garden was a favorite; I could totally see one of those bold palm tree print dresses having cacti instead of the palms. Then again, I have a weird fascination with cacti (so many shapes?! And types?!) but either way, find a botanical garden and go there. You will be inspired.
