Green Thumb

Anything can grow in California. The climate is perfect all year round. Most of the plants that are grown there now were introduced to the area. We went to several history sites that were covered in awesome plants I have never seen before. Even the ones that could not produce food could be used for something else like brooms, medicine, cleaning...

One place we went was The Getty Museum. Getty wanted to create a Mediterranean Villa to house his large Greek and Roman art collection that he had collected over the years. The outside gardens had tons of plants.

 Peach Tree
 Artichokes. I never knew they looked like this.
