The Pomona Colleges, home of the Southern California Violin Builders' Workshop, has the most beautiful grounds. Nice architecture, good public art, and gorgeous gardens. When we got here, the Jacaranda trees were in full bloom. Two weeks later, they are tapering off a bit, but they are still a treat to look at. I really like jacarandas, as long as they are somebody else's concern; after they're done with their display, they make a mess.
