South Coast Botanic Gardens in Yellow

The past three days were packed with multiple events I was invited to, all on the west side of Los Angeles, so I stayed at my son’s place. I did manage to grab a few free hours Saturday morning, though, for a long-overdue visit to a favorite place on that side of town, the South Coast Botanic Gardens in Rancho Palos Verdes. As a person whose job requires indoor office work on a computer five days a week, I make a point of getting outside as often as possible on the weekends.

The weather was cool and overcast, the gardens rather empty. I wandered the trails rarely passing anyone else. It seems an orchid show and sale in progress near the entrance held the crowd’s attention. Once I returned home this evening, and looked over my photos, I noticed a variety of yellow flowers and decided to group them for this post. The orchids were stunning, of course, but I even enjoyed the random spots of yellow that I noticed from the trails. Such a cheerful color! ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

    I think it would be rather pleasant to have the gardens mostly to yourself!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
