Closing Out The Year 2019

The end of 2019 and the decade of tens is upon us here in Southern California. I imagine plenty of folks are out celebrating, waiting for the approach of midnight to down some (more) champagne and toast one another. I treated myself to a nice dinner out and returned home. I don’t like being on […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Spare

…and she escaped with not a moment to spare! This is my entry into the current week’s Photo Challenge: Spare. I managed to capture this photo yesterday at the Los Angeles County Arboretum. The male peacocks were vying for attention of the females, showing off their gorgeous finery. The females were disinterested, and trying their […]

Three Views at the Arboretum

These photos were taken on a recent visit to a favorite, very beautiful place, the Los Angeles County Arboretum in Arcadia. Naturally, our Southern California weather was in fine form that day! My apologies to our friends in the areas loaded with more snow than they know what to do with. ~SueBee

Pasadena Pops at the Arboretum

I look forward to the Pasadena Pops summer concert series at the Los Angeles County Arboretum in Arcadia each year. Last evening’s performance featured four of Broadway’s Leading Ladies, Susan Egan, Valerie Perri, Christina Saffran, Lisa Vroman, as well as David Burnham, also of Broadway fame. It was fabulous! I listed the songs below the […]

Peacock in Flight

Sunday was a busy out ‘n about day for Kat and me. From a classic car show in Fullerton, to a dim sum restaurant for lunch, followed by the Arboretum in Arcadia, and ending up at our favorite North Woods restaurant for their famous salads and cheesy bread, we covered the town. Today’s Foto Fix is […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: On the Move

This grouping of photos is titled Kids on the Move, reflecting the joy of childhood, and is our entry into this week’s photo challenge, On the Move. These kids were having a blast pushing each other in their wagon at the Los Angeles County Arboretum in Arcadia while waiting for the Pasadena Pops concert of MGM […]

Fuschia Blooms

Today’s Foto Fix features brilliantly colored blooms on a tree at the L.A. County Arboretum. I neglected to check the tag for tree variety, so please chime in if you know! It appears slightly similar to an orchard, but is there such a thing as an orchid tree? ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

Ready for Battle

This scene reminded me of the western movies I loved as a kid…. brave warriors, lined up, spears proudly held upright, each ready for battle, awaiting the command to attack…the spears then lowered and horses nudged into action. Today’s Foto Fix and story were created at the Los Angeles County Arboretum a week or so […]

L.A. Mycological Society

Who knew? Not me! Knew what, you ask? That a society exists for mushrooms! I’d never even heard the word mycology (the study of mushrooms and fungi) in my life. A recent visit to the L.A. County Arboretum, though, coincided with an exhibition sponsored by the Los Angeles Mycological Society. I arrived late in the day, […]

I’m filing this picture under “only in Southern California”. I’ve seen plenty of limousines being driven around the Southland, taking high school kids to the prom, famous people to events, bridal parties to and fro… but I’ve never seen a limo this crazy long before! While walking around the L.A. County Arboretum in Arcadia this past […]

“Town Squawker”

Knowing the fondness humans have for birds, particularly towards the end of November, I can hear this Town Squawker loudly calling out a warning to his feathered friends… “Run, HIDE, it’s that time of year again!!!” Poor guy doesn’t understand it’s not Roast Peacock being served with mashed potatoes and gravy. Today’s Foto Fix was […]
