GARDEN SECRET

Best spot for quiet convo

A tucked away bench near the native plants

Relax on a bench up the hill in the California Garden, a spot with a prime view that feels secluded. It’s a perfect place for quiet contemplation or conversation.

The first #tulips have bloomed 🌷 We are delighted to see this #spring favorite unfurling along the Promenade.

When do we expect peak bloom this year? It will likely occur in March but is entirely dependent on the #weather. 

We post our bloom updates in real time, and the best way to keep up-to-date on their progress is to follow us as we share what's happening in the coming weeks 🌷 #ExploreDescanso
