I had planned to write a more detailed article about Malibu’s national parks and wildlife. However, I can’t do it justice and instead I’ve shared below a gallery of some of what we saw in early July during California’s mid-summer dry season. Earlier in the year, the plants would be lusher. The exquisite, subtle colouring of the plants has stayed with me and I recommend people to spend some time examining the photos. As many of our garden plants in the UK come from North America, the Californian national parks felt as though someone had designed and planted them. It’s a very special landscape that has stayed on my mind since we were there. All a real surprise as I’d thought of Malibu only for surfers and celebrities.
