The William Wrigley Memorial and Botanical Gardens
Yesterday, I went to the Wrigley Memorial and Botanical Gardens on Catalina. It honors William Wrigley, who did so much for Catalina Island. You can read more about it here. The memorial and garden was built in the early 1930's. It was the idea of Ada Wrigley (William's wife). It was beautiful! I am not a "dessert" style gardener, but the cactus and unusual trees were great. There are six endemic plants, which grow only on Catalina. It was a peaceful and picturesque visit!
