Palm Springs Botanical Gardens

I’m embarrassed to say that although these gardens were established in 1939, and I grew up in Palm Springs, it wasn’t until they became an Instagram sensation that I learned of their existence. I’ve never felt more like a millennial in my life. Except for that one time I paid $14 for avocado toast after quitting my job to pursue online business..

Exploring these magical Palm Springs botanical gardens is the perfect way to spend a cloudy afternoon. Thousands of different species from all over the world live in this one-acre garden. Agave, Aloe Vera, various cacti and succulents are organized by varietal and region. Rare species from Madagascar, the Mojave Desert, Colorado and beyond are on display as you wander through.

It’s such a perfectly curated space, it’s no wonder that the couple that created this beautiful sanctuary also assisted Walt Disney in the creation of Disneyland’s Frontierland.

I hope you enjoy these photos of this breathtaking Palm Springs botanical garden. I highly recommend a visit if you’re ever in the area!
