Succulents + Bonsai = Lone Pine Gardens

| 4 Comments

After our stop at California Carnivores we ate some cheeseburgers at the Sequoia Burger to refuel before heading to another one of our favorite Sebastopol spots, Lone Pine Gardens. It’s has been around for over 30 years and is full of fabulous succulents, cacti and bonsai trees.

This is part of their xeriscaped demonstration garden packed with drought tolerant cacti and succulents.

More tables of goodness

Welcome to bonsai central

This lovely entrance takes you to tables and tables of bonsai trees.

All of Matti’s bonsai trees have come from here, e.g. they also sell the trees before they went all bonsai on them.  Almost every nursery in the Bay Area has bonsai trees from Lone Pine.

Not for sale!

The Bald Cypresses (Taxodium distichum) were my favorites.
