Butchart Gardens in Canada. Especially love the first picture, love the colour blend, and the tall Arborvitae trees. Type of evergreen, also called Northern White Cedar, historically used to make tea to prevent scurvy, contains 50 mg vitmain c per 100 grams. Can be planted as close as 3 feet. Love them!!
Descanso Forest - California Beautiful trees...some huge old Oaks at Descanso Gardens, near La Canada. Lovely Flower gardens, old roses...and in the Spring, hundreds of Camellias bloom. So relaxing to wander the trails... Used to have special Christmas displays with art goods and plants, wonder if they still do. A favorite place.

Explodes with rich lavender flowers that look like Orchids but smell like Jasmine. Grows as far north as Canada and as far south as Mexico. Apparently this tree can be invasive and doesn't produce strong wood, so be sure to do your research before you plant anything :)
