Writing Honorable Mention: Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens {Catch-Up}

Gray mist meets vibrant blooms contest deadline of February 29, 2012
The Mendocino Botanical Gardens's logo is perfect: waves and flowers. That's what you get at this oceanfront wonder. Hiking trails wind through canyons whose walls are carpeted with ferns of all kinds; rocky cliffs form the border of the property where the land meets the sea. Depending on the season you might encounter giant airy rhododendron or petal-rich camellias in expertly manicured gardens. We happened through the garden when the fuchsias were flaunting their vibrant blossoms—ruffly, hanging flowers in every shade of pink and red—everything a feast for the eyes.
