Late Afternoon at the Huntington

On the way home from my brother and sister-in-law’s in Burbank yesterday, I stopped for a fairly short visit at the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens. I arrived at 3pm; the gardens close at 5.

Beautiful Black Bird

Continuing from yesterday’s post, on into the desert at the Huntington we go! The fascinating array of plant life is mind-boggling, particularly in springtime when colorful flowers make their bold statement, “Look at Me, Look at Me”!! Be sure your face doesn’t get too close to that perky yellow flower, though, or you might end with a […]

Exploring the Huntington, 1

A week or two ago, I took a spontaneous day off work (that’s called playing hooky), and visited the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens in San Marino. I became a member last year, when Stinky was on display (link to post here), and was overdue for another visit. The day was perfect, cool and overcast. […]

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
