Until now Quail Botanical Gardens has been one of the best kept secrets of San Diego. Located in picturesque Encinitas, this is a gorgeous botanical garden. It includes two children’s gardens and plenty of other beautiful gardens to explore. On our last visit, we had to park in overflow parking and discovered a breathtaking Monet lilypond complete with resident frogs. I will post more about my Quail Garden adventures at a later date, but I wanted to share this moment that my ten year old Justin captured, by sneaking a shot from the bushes at the edge of the pond. It was the highlight of our August visit.
Quail Gardens has changed its name to San Diego Botanic Garden, hopefully it’s new name will attract more visitors and donors to this San Diego treasure. You can learn more about the garden
