The diversity of plants at the University of California Santa Cruz Arboretum is amazing!  There are unusual flower shapes that you could never imagine.  The hummingbirds are especially abundant too – it is a photographer’s playground.  It is well worth a visit.  More info is at:  https://www.santacruz.org/a-stroll-through-the-arboretum/

      You’ll love it! Very informal garden and easy to just wander around and find surprises. Afterward drive up the coast to Half Moon Bay and then go east back to Highway 280.
