Tuesday was Free Day for a beautiful botanical garden near our home and for a scoop of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream. I was determined not to spend any money that day, and I think I succeeded in having a lot of fun in the process. We split the cost with our friends April and Adam.
First stop LA County Arboretum, which is in Arcadia and is well known for these
We explored the Australia section for the first time and found some wonderful flowers (help Enid, I don't know what they are called).
Then on to the waterfall, with its lava rocks and stairs to the top
Finally, the much anticipated free scoop of ice cream. The unusually hot temperatures made this ice cream taste extra good.
