Weekend Getaway-The Gardens of Hearst Castle


This past weekend me and my husband went to central California to attend my cousin’s wedding. Before we headed back down to Southern California, we visited the beautiful Hearst Castle. The castle itself is an incredible sight, but today I want to tell  you all about the gardens of Hearst Castle.
