Two years ago, at Art Retreat #4, we discovered Sunnylands. This year it was even more beautiful. If that is possible. Nine acres of gardens, laid out with paths circling through them, benches carefully (and frequently) placed for sitting, and a labyrinth for meditation.
If you are a lover of the desert landscape, this is a must see.
The single-specimen beds are perfect and provide an opportunity for viewing in sun and shade.
The views through to the snow topped mountains are pretty spectacular as well.
Did I say there is no admission to wander through the gardens? And they provide a map so you can be sure not to miss a single section. You can race through it all in an hour if you must, or spend a few hours and then go sit in the cafe (outside) and think about all you have seen.
