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.
