Hubbell Tour and Native Gardens

Last weekend I went on the Ilan-Lael Foundation Tour of the James and Anne Hubbell property in northern San Diego County. Above Santa Ysabel, this 40 acre paradise is their home and the Hubbell art studio. It is also home to their foundation, Ilan-Lael, which is an art education and nature center.

Much of the surrounding area is maritime chaparral, and Dick Miller, our CNPS volunteer who did such great work on the 212 Conservation Conference, was there to lead guided walks of the surroundings. He pointed out Penstemon in bloom, Sambucus coming into blossom, and other delights. I took a ton of pictures (of still-varying quality) and posted them at my web site, if you'd like to glance through them.
