CAST – Day 4

The last full day of our travels around the California Spring Trials was well rewarded at three sites where we enjoyed seeing plenty of color and some fun new selections.  Directly above is Bidens ‘Golden Empire’ which looked gret today.  The day originally had the forecast of rain but we lucked out with sunshine and a relatively warm day out in the gardens.  Our travels took us to multiple destinations where we received excellent tours and top notch hospitality.  We have two more sites in the morning then everyone heads back to their respective homes with flights from San Jose, CA.  We had some nice bonding activities tonight and throughout this group travel and I look forward to tomorrow!
