Brilliant Colors at the Arboretum

We had a smattering of rain on Sunday morning; it’s been an unusually rainy year. Once the rain moved on I drove to the nearby Fullerton Arboretum, at the university campus. There’s really nothing like walking through gardens after a bit of rain. Everything’s been washed clean, the flowers are smiling, the moist, damp earth […]

Origin of Oranges

A recent visit to the Fullerton Arboretum brought air that was fragrant with orange blossoms. I stood under the trees and inhaled sweetness to my heart’s delight. Talk about real life aromatherapy, ahhhhh!! ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dense

This week’s Photo Challenge of the word Dense features very dense-set, extremely sharp spikes on a cactus plant in the Fullerton Arboretum. Definitely a source of ouch if you get too close. ~SueBee

Lady on a Bench

Your eye is directed to the brilliantly colored flowers on the right, while there sits a lady on a bench, swinging her feet as they don’t quite touch the ground… over on the left! I shot towards the sun, needed to add a bit of contrast, but I rather like the look of the lighting. […]

Poppies at Fullerton Arboretum

The newspapers have reported here lately about the carpets of wild flowers in the desert due to our rains this year. Saturday, driving out toward the desert with my family for wine tasting in Temecula, we were stuck in traffic and dragging along for miles. Turns out, the hills along the freeway were covered with patches […]

A Sunday Afternoon in the Garden

I enjoyed last Sunday afternoon, wandering around the Fullerton Arboretum, on what felt like a springtime day. Such are the reasons we live here in Southern California. We may moan and complain about the intense, seemingly endless hot spells, and worry about the drought and damage it’s done, but we still continue to love our blue […]

Monday Morning Kitty

This kitty shares the same expression I have each Monday morning as I head off to work. I took this picture on Sunday afternoon at the community garden section of nearby Fullerton University’s Arboretum. It was a gorgeous, warm, breezy day and perfect for a walk in the gardens.~SueBee

Spring is Sprung

Happy first day of Spring, everyone! The photos in this gallery were taken at the Fullerton Arboretum, and seem the perfect fit for the day. While those of us living in Southern California haven’t been under snow or had many cold days, we do enjoy the colorful flowers and greenery of the new season. Knowing the brilliant green will […]

It’s Nearly Springtime

Wandering around at the Fullerton Arboretum this past Sunday afternoon, it seemed like spring was already here. While we don’t get the shocking contrast of cold winters, we do get the brown, dried-out land that comes with years of drought. Seeing spring’s green is so refreshing. It’s great having a place like the Arboretum within 20 minutes […]

Conversing with the Flowers, part 1

It was too nice of a day to stay inside, so I took a quick drive to the Fullerton Arboretum on Sunday. It might as well be springtime! The flowers and I had lovely conversations. ~SueBee

Tech issues update

The new computer is being delivered tomorrow! Pending setup and learning curve, our blog should be back in action very soon. I’m attempting to write this article on my very small-screen iPhone and attach a photo taken with same at the Fullerton Arboretum last week. I don’t know how this post will look once I […]

Ouch and Other Desert Plants

After walking with White Crane the other day, I wandered off to the desert area of the Fullerton Arboretum, always a favorite spot. Remembering when Kat discovered a Hidden Heart, I was pleased with myself for spotting the heart shaped Ouch cactus in this photo: The plant below reminded me of Medusa’s hair, but thankfully […]

White Crane’s Garden Walk

After first checking his reflection in the mirror, White Crane set off on a little afternoon constitutional through the gardens. Intent on avoiding a group of children approaching, he took flight for a moment. Upon landing near the daffodils he glanced over and beckoned to me…. at least I’m certain that was his intent. I’m […]

“Leprechaun Hiding Place”

As I carefully got into eye-level position on the moist (wet, muddy, cold) Fullerton Arboretum ground, a few thoughts went through my head…. I must be nuts, I look ridiculous, I hope no one walks by, I hope I can get back up. Too late for any of that, I scooted into various angles, hoping […]

“A Quiet Moment”

The gardens were nearly empty, the weather brisk, leaves having fallen off trees, but not yet swept away nor turned brown. Silence surrounded me, other than the occasional crunch crunch as I sought out leaves to step on. Approaching a small bridge leading over the creek, I paused. There sat this closely-nestled couple, the elderly […]

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
