It looked and felt very much like our own […]

Descanso Gardens in Early January, Part 1

(12 photos) I visited Descanso Gardens today, a beautiful spot near my home town of La Crescenta, about a dozen miles north of downtown Los Angeles. The weather couldn’t have been better, with visitors at a minimum. The plants looked tired and dusty but the camellias showed off their beauty regardless. I think they’re truly […]

Nice Bench for Pondering

I’m restraining myself as much as humanly possible, withholding all matter of cuss words and other adjectives from this post, after our country made a fool of itself in yesterday’s presidential election. I feel this photo is appropriate for the situation many of us find ourselves in, pondering how this could have happened, fearful for the future. Might […]

Descanso’s Camellias

Descanso Gardens had once been the estate of Elias Manchester Boddy and family; the history can be found at this […]

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
