Our designer Alyssa Erickson stopped by the arboretum at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and she brought back some great photos for us. If you can, you should stop by. It's an amazing place. Alyssa recommends going in the spring when the Banksias, Proteas, Grevilleas and Leucadendrons are at their best. Don't miss the bees going for those Banksias.
