Flora - Fauna Tips (7)

One of the most spectacular views in San Diego

I've been living in San Diego for almost three years now, but only yesterday did I visit the Hermitage and Meditation Gardens in the Self Realization Center in Encinitas yesterday, and I am still in awe as to how beautiful the views are! No wonder the place is called the Meditation Gardens. The views are just spectacular! Forget the zoos, visit this place instead. Plus, admission is FREE. You can't beat that!

Sea Lions

Everyone should stop at La Jolla cove to watch the Sea Lions! It's a very unique experience.

Sea Lions are a type of seal, recognized by their external ears, ability to walk on land, and their barking. The sea lions seem to be Monterey's top attraction, as people are often lining the beach to watch them play or watch them sleep on the rocks (exciting!). The California Sea Lion is distinguished from other sea lion species by the males' large forehead, hence the scientific name Zalophus californianus literally meaning "California Big Head".

Spanish flowers?

They put a lot of flowers, bushes, cacti around Spanish-style houses in Spanish Village Art Center. They grew in pots standing on a ground or hanging around the houses. Didn't they look really nice?

Water lilies

Take a look at water lilies in the Lake of the Flowers.

WATER LILY is common name for some members of the Nymphaeaceae, a family of freshwater perennial herbs found in most parts of the world and often characterized by large shield-shaped leaves and showy, fragrant blossoms of various colors. Among the plants of the family are the water lilies, lotuses, and pond lilies (called also cow lilies and spatterdocks) of the genera Nymphaea, Nelumbo, and Nuphar, respectively; however, the common names often overlap; e.g., “water lily” is used for most species of the family and even for other unrelated aquatic plants with similar flowers.

The Lake of the Flowers

Japanese Koi, goldfish, water lilies and lotus commune in the 193-by 43-foot lily pond (originally called Las Lagunas de las Flores or The Lake of the Flowers) that rolls out like a liquid carpet before the entrance to the Botanical Building. It is an eloquent example of the use of reflecting pools to enhance architecture, I think. The water lillies and lotus bloom spring through fall.
