Occasional Traveler

A collection of my thoughts and photos on travel.

Mi Jardin es Su Jardin

with 2 comments

November 24, 2009 | We changed out of our soaked clothes and my dad went out to rent us a car.  Instead of coming back with a car, he made a new friend who worked at the car rental place– Josefina, who offered to drive us to Mi Jardin es Su Jardin.  Funny story– my dad was trying to bargain with Josefina and she commented that he reminded her of her dad, who’s Chinese!  Anyway, so they got to talking, and next thing you know, she’s offered to drive our family, haha.   Josefina and her husband drove us to the garden, and Josefina told us she’d be back to pick us up after she got off of work, at which time, she was going to show us around town.  Nice, huh?

Mi Jardin es Su Jardin is privately owned but open to the public.  The garden is pretty big and was very well-maintained.  I took a bunch of pictures here!

With the mountains in the background and all the different flowers and plants in the garden, the place was beautiful!  There are also random painted statues around the place (i.e. cows, miniature houses, etc.).  There’s a main house that I think might be used for events?  It didn’t look like anyone was there at the time.

 

 

It briefly rained while we were there, but we ducked under a pavillion until it passed and waited for Josefina to pick us up.

    • Thanks!! I figure that anyway can take a picture, but it’s the story behind them that makes it more personal.
