Moorten Botanical Garden, Palm Springs CA
Moorten Botanical Gaden aka my dream world! Angela and I swung by here on our way to the Palm Springs airport. It was the perfect way to end our 9 day trip out west.
It was a self guided tour so we took it slow and easy, roaming around giant cacti and exploring "The World's First Cactarium". Twice.
The owner was a cute old man and he was so friendly. We bought a few succulents and I asked if he had "the kind of aloe you can rub on your cuts and stuff". He said "One minute- I'll be right back". We watched him go over to this giant aloe plant and cut off a sprig for me. He came back with a smile on his face and gave it me for free. That tiny little sprig has grown into a beautiful aloe plant that sits by the window in my kitchen.
