"Lotusland, a stunning public garden in southern California, is one of the most incredible botanical gardens in the world. Created by Madame Ganna Walska, a Polish opera singer and socialite who purchased the estate in 1941, the garden is home to more than 3,400 types of plants. Take a walk through this astounding garden from the comfort of your armchair, preferably while lounging in your own garden." -VERANDA
