Whimsical Garden Scene

The flowers in this scene, taken a week ago at Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, look like little critters waving hello. I don’t know what they are, but they’re both pretty and adorable at the same time. ~SueBee

Pale Yellow and Pink Roses

A visit to the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens in San Marino yesterday, and wandering around the beautiful rose garden brings today’s Foto Fix. It was a delightfully overcast, cool day, perfect for all the walking I did. The roses have a vintage look, don’t you think? ~SueBee

Huntington’s Garden Colors

Kat and I enjoy variety, both in our blog posts and our activities… from visiting inner city streets, to sunny beaches, and on to beautiful gardens. Such ordered chaos best describes everything that’s available in Southern California! Today’s gallery of color was taken at the Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino, a favorite place. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Japanese Garden at the Huntington

Serenity and bonsai are two of many features in the Japanese garden at Southern California’s Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino. I’m always intrigued by the bonsai, reflective of the utmost in patience and determination. It’s an art form that demonstrates such a contrast to today’s “two second society” as to be nearly incomprehensible. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Hot Afternoon, Cool Garden Paths

Ever hopeful that our Southern California heat-spell, our never-ending summer, will finally turn to autumn, I’m posting these garden photos as inspiration for cooler days. They were taken at the beautiful Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Lady in the Pond

Today’s Foto Fix was taken in the lower garden area at the Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino. I do enjoy reflections, but found this one particularly confusing/intriguing when flipped upside down. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

Posters from the Great War

This collection of posters from the first World War (WWI) was on display at the Huntington Library and Gardens when I was there visiting Stinky. Viewing the posters, one naturally reflects that here we are today, nearly a hundred years, and many “great” wars later, still killing each other. A pitiful statement of certain aspects of mankind. I personally […]

Rosebud

A simple, lovely rosebud for today’s Foto Fix as Kat and I are heading off on a weekend of adventures, including wine tasting, camping, and boating, with family and friends, celebrating my son’s 31st birthday. Where did the years go?! Seems he was just a toddler. This rosebud showed its pretty face at the Huntington Library and Gardens while I […]

Stinky!

(Gallery, 14 photos) I’d planned on sharing some more L.A. Harbor shots from Friday, but instead, I simply HAVE to share pictures of Stinky, the famous Corpse Flower (Amorphophallus titanium), that I took today! As an occasional visitor, and now member, of the Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino, I’d read about the excitement and anticipation surrounding their resident corpse […]

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
