Mardi Gras Cat

Dia de los Muertos in Los Angeles, part 1

(18 photos) I had a very spontaneous visit to Los Angeles yesterday, after dropping my son off there. When he asked if I could do him this favor, naturally my mind went directly to my trusty sidekick, the Nikon! So, camera in hand, I ended up exploring from one end of the city to the other. […]

It’s the Great Pumpkin!

While visiting South Coast Botanic Garden in Rancho Palos Verdes a few weeks back, I felt lucky to see the great pumpkin! The garden has a multitude of pathways, so it’s well possible that I’d have wandered around for hours and never seen this master of pumpkins. As it was closing time, I didn’t have a chance […]

Christmas at South Coast Plaza

I had a few spare hours this evening while waiting to meet my oldest daughter after work, so I stopped by the huge, upscale shopping mall near work. South Coast Plaza is a beautiful place, as mall’s go. With designer shops and wonderful restaurants, a merry go round, and what seems like miles of walkways, it’s an experience […]

Los Angeles Zoo Holiday Lights

Celebrating Kat’s 25th Birthday this past Sunday was a blast! Kat’s older sister, Angelika, bought tickets for the L.A. Zoo Holiday Lights. The only animals to be seen were Santa’s reindeer, and from off in the distance, we saw an elephant. The rest must have been in bed, or not part of the holiday tour […]

Halloween Street Festival

Kids in costume, adults in costume, everyone parading, riding the horse-drawn hay wagon, trick or treating at the shops… lots of fun for participants and on-lookers alike yesterday afternoon, and on into the evening hours in our town of Orange, in Southern California. Happy Halloween to all, and that’s the end of October! ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Rise of the Jack O’Lantern

Yesterday, after a long day at work, Kat and I jumped in my little truck and zipped onto the freeway… where we patiently sat in traffic for well over an hour until finally stopping for dinner. We then continued on to our destination in La Canada Flintridge, Descanso Gardens. A few weeks back, I’d purchased tickets for the […]

Berry Pickin’

Kat and I took a spontaneous drive up the mountainside to Oak Glen this past Sunday, for berry pickin’! What a grand idea that was, and just an hour’s drive from home. We spotted wild berries along our favorite nature trail, but ended up at Snow Line Orchard  for the actual picking. The charge was $13 for three empty plastic baskets, row upon […]

Lights, Lights, Lights!

This past weekend was the last weekend of the Festival of Lights at the Mission Inn. Having never been to the Mission Inn during the Holidays before, and having heard how incredible the lights are, I really hoped I would get there this year….and I did! Cam and I took the trip to Riverside last […]

Rose Floats!

Pasadena was in the spotlight yesterday, and didn’t fail to impress. The annual Rose Parade was offered up under clear blue skies and sunshine. Since I don’t have much patience for sitting still through a parade, I chose instead to view the floats directly post-parade. However, I’d have been better off arriving later in the afternoon. […]

To wrap up a fantastic 2013, and bring in 2014, here are some of our favorite pics from the past year 🙂 […]

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

Until recently, I’ve seen snow twice in my life:  While living in Germany for a couple years when I was too young to remember anything, it apparently snowed on my birthday one year! When I was like 4, while dropping my brother off for a school trip in the mountains somewhere. Spending the vast majority […]

A Stroll Down Main Street on an October Afternoon

If you ever have an opportunity to visit Disneyland on your own, without the intention of getting on every ride…to just stroll along Main Street, and check out all the design details…do it! Right now, everything is gorgeously decorated for Fall; the park looks magnificent! With hundreds of uniquely hand-carved pumpkins (no two look alike!) […]

Pre-Halloween Creepy

Since we’re into October now, it’s time to set the mood… starting with a few creepy shots taken in various Southern California gardens, from Fullerton Arboretum to L.A. County Arboretum, Descanso Gardens to South Coast Botanical Garden. The green gourd monster was photographed at Cal Poly Pomona’s Farm Store, the shadows at the Getty. The […]

Fall Season at Descanso Gardens

The wonderful season of Fall is officially (and finally) here! Pumpkin Spice Lattes, scarves & boots, leaves changing colors, and of course, Harvest decorations! Descanso Gardens (located in La Canada Flintridge) is my all time favorite botanical garden, especially during this time of year when pumpkins and haystacks are scattered throughout…perfect place for some Fall-themed […]
