A very popular local magazine had published the “40 Best Ways To Celebrate Summer” in their July/ August issue. I love this magazine. We live in an area that people travel from all over the world to visit, and I only know about Target & Costco. This issue was a perfect way to discover local sites to make the most out of our Summer. One of the places mentioned was Quarryhill Botanical Gardens. “This is not your typical botanical garden. Quarryhill is a wild Asian woodland, intentionally not manicured and featuring one of the largest collections of wild-sourced Asian plants in the world. From the remains of an abandoned quarry, Quarryhill Botanical Garden evolved as a glorious example, to all gardeners, of what can happen when you dream big.” I was worried that my boys would get bored, but that was not the case at all. It’s not manicured and wild nature give the younger ones fantastic places to explore and roam free. This article was originally featured on my other blog Girls Bee Haven.
