Garden Art

There was an art exhibit spread throughout the California Botanic Garden in Claremont during my recent visit. The gallery below shows a few of the pieces I found interesting. ~SueBee

Make Do With What You Have

While walking through the California Botanic Garden in Claremont last week, I noticed this shed with an odd leg. Getting closer, I had to laugh at someone’s ingenuity. I hope the plastic holds up long enough for a new piece of wood to be cut! ~SueBee

It Snowed!

Southern California was visited by a powerful storm Sunday and Monday. My town of Orange had hail, wind, snow, torrential rain, lightning, thunder, more hail…! I looked out my front window to see a raging river of ice going down the street. If I could share videos on here, you’d see what I mean. Truly […]

View from Rim of the World

I haven’t been out and about to take new pictures for quite a while by now, so decided to share one I took a few years back. The wide open space of this view from Rim of the World near Lake Arrowhead in Southern California looks very attractive to me! I long for the days […]

Winds Bring Fire

Late yesterday afternoon the strong winds kicked up again… and later in the evening, Kat messaged asking if I smelled smoke. I went outside and discovered, yes, the air smelled of smoke. I checked all the various local news sites online and couldn’t find anything about wildfires having started. But, this morning brought news of […]

Old Town Orange, Ready for the Holidays

I took at early morning walk with a very pregnant Kat through downtown Orange. We went early in hopes of avoiding people, and were lucky in that regard. Since the start of the pandemic, Kat hasn’t been out much. It was a really nice change of pace, and looking at all the decorations was enjoyable. […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope this post finds you and your family healthy and happy. It’s been an “interesting” year, but I personally have much to be thankful for. Here’s wishing a very Happy Thanksgiving to you! ~SueBee *About my little scene: The wooden turkey was handmade by my sister-in-law’s father a few decades ago, a wonderful man […]

Sundown at Irvine Park

A brief visit to Irvine Park in the late afternoon recently reminded me how fast it gets dark these days! ~SueBee

Morning at Descanso Gardens, 2

I’m sharing additional pictures from my recent morning at the ever-beautiful Descanso Gardens. I’ve found over the past endless months of Covid seclusion that my mental health has been best served by visits to the various gardens in Southern California. There’s nothing quite like being outdoors. ~SueBee

Morning at Descanso Gardens, 1

A spontaneous visit to Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge resulted in the beautiful scenes included in this post. The number of visitors are being limited, advance reservations must be made by all non-members, and face masks are required. I was lucky to get a same-day, early morning spot, took a surprisingly pleasant drive up […]

Views at Laguna Beach Tidepools

It was a beautiful day at Laguna Beach, and deserved a good wander along the tidepools… while being careful not to catch a wave! I was certainly envious of the kayakers going by. I haven’t been able to kayak at all this year due to the Covid situation; rental facilities have been closed. ~SueBee

Oak Glen After The El Dorado Fire, part 2

Here are a few more scenes from my recent visit to Oak Glen, as I checked out the results of the wildfires. You’ll notice pretty wildflowers growing alongside the road, a quintessential apple worm hole, red apples not picked in time, and other pictures that make us thankful the fires were stopped. It’s such a […]

Beautiful Laguna Beach

Not wanting to endure another day of temperatures in the upper 90s, I hopped in my car and headed to the beach… Laguna Beach, that is. I was thrilled to nab a parking spot, grabbed my camera, fed the parking meter, and headed off down the path. What a perfect day, and with temps a […]

Oak Glen After The El Dorado Fire

Curious about the damage caused to Oak Glen from the El Dorado Fire, I decided to drive up there this morning. Before heading out, I made sure roads were open and visitors allowed. Side note to those not living in Southern California… this fire was started by humans setting off a smoke bomb in dry […]

Picnic Near Mount Pinos

Yesterday I had the immense pleasure of joining my brother and his wife on a day trip to the area around Mount Pinos for a picnic. I left home in Orange by 8:30am, hopping on the freeway, and heading north past downtown Los Angeles, ending at their home in Burbank. That 44 mile part of […]

Cold Spring Tavern

Departing Solvang via Hwy 154, and driving past Lake Cachuma, I then turned onto Stagecoach Road, en route to the Cold Spring Tavern. They currently have limited hours due to the Coronavirus situation, so I arrived just before their 11:30am opening time on a Thursday. I’m glad I got there early as I could wander […]

Driving Past Lake Cachuma

On my return drive from Solvang, I followed Route 154, past Lake Cachuma, on my way to the historic Cold Springs Tavern (next post). As you can see from the pictures, the sky was smoke-filled, although much less so than back home in Orange. The drive was really nice, uncrowded, until I spotted a large […]

A Glass of Rose

I took another drive up north earlier this past week, passing Los Angeles and eventually Santa Barbara, as well. I ended up in Solvang, an adorable Danish town set in green, rolling hills a bit inland from the coast. I was there for a one night get-away, and after checking in to the motel, headed […]

Views at Santa Barbara

Today is a special day… it’s my first time sharing a guest picture! A fellow blogger who posts from Scotland (Tootlepedal) does so and I thought I’d follow suit. I’m therefore sharing a gorgeous picture of a night-blooming Epiphyllum (Cereus) taken by my brother, Glenn, in his backyard. He told me he held a flashlight […]

Happy 7 Year Anniversary to SueBee and Kat!

September 1, 2013, SueBee and Kat launched. Today, seven years, 1108 posts, and 7616 photos later, the website is still going strong. While 2020 has been a year unlike any other with the Coronavirus (Covid19) nightmare, lockdown for months on end, places closed, and traveling limited to near nothingness, I’ve still managed to take pictures […]

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
