It looks like it is much improved from the last time we were there in the early to mid 1990s. We took my mother-in-law there who was visiting from Tucson. She loved gardening and all kinds of plants. So, it was a good place to stop on a drive to San Diego. She had a nice time walking thru the gardens, as basic as they were at the time. We'll have to go back to see how it has filed in, but we won't be able to bring her along because she has since passed away. Thanks for the pictures and bringing back a happy memory.
