Plants and art – two things dearly loved here at Garden Gluttony! The beautiful San Diego Botanic Garden is not only home to plants from all over the world, but it also showcases a diversity of sculpture from local artists throughout the gardens. It’s a great mix of both. I showed you the Bamboo Grove, our nation’s largest collection, in a previous post and now you will see some of the sculpture as well as plants from the part of the garden the pieces are in. Let the art walk begin!
