This building houses their European Art Collection. Of course I didn't go inside, who has time for that! It was (and always is) all about the gardens for me.
I walked up to the building simply to get a look at the plants along the back balcony/deck...
Then the different urns, with their planty backgrounds, caught my eye...
Back down on the ground, looking up at the building above, and trying to decide whether or not I liked the rocks...
Since it was December the poinsettia blooms were festively appropriate.
But those rocks, I'm just not sure about them.
I might have to make another visit soon to see how things have grown in.
I think this is part of the same building, just around on the end towards the garden entrance—I believe that's to the eastside.
I'm a sucker for an old fountain, especially when there are plants at it's base.
Creeping fig meets Acacia cognata 'Cousin Itt', an over-the-wall romance.
They do 'Cousin Itt' here at the Huntington, almost as well as Kris does in her garden.
I'll end with this, Stenocarpus sinuatus also known as the firewheel tree. It's an Australian rainforest tree in the Proteaceae family. Pretty cool...
