Luther Burbank Home & Garden

It was a perfectly sunny and warm day in Santa Rosa, California.  But sunset was fast approaching as we took a stroll at the Luther Burbank Home & Garden.

Luther Burbank (March 7, 1849 – April 11, 1926) was an American botanist, horticulturist and pioneer in agricultural science.

He is credited with introducing more than 250 new varieties of fruit, including a large number of plum varieties that are widely used in agriculture.

A portion of the property was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1964.
