Morning at the Botanic Garden

My oldest daughter met me recently at the South Coast Botanic Garden for a socially distanced morning. It was required to reserve our spots in advance, as entry numbers were limited, and to wear our masks during the visit. It was really nice to get out for awhile; the gardens were beautiful. I hope everyone […]

Dancing Daisies

It’s the Great Pumpkin!

While visiting South Coast Botanic Garden in Rancho Palos Verdes a few weeks back, I felt lucky to see the great pumpkin! The garden has a multitude of pathways, so it’s well possible that I’d have wandered around for hours and never seen this master of pumpkins. As it was closing time, I didn’t have a chance […]

Brief Visit to the Garden

(11 photos in gallery) Toward the end of September, I was in the area of South Coast Botanic Garden on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, and stopped for a short walk. It was too hot to cover much of the garden, but I enjoyed watching an artist at work, finding numerous benches hidden throughout, and the […]

Orchid Show

I almost forgot I’d taken these shots. Those of us out and about all the time have an abundance of photos, and some of them tend to get overlooked! These beauties were on display at South Coast Botanic Garden in Rancho Palos Verdes. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Fascinated by the Brown Flower Tree

I expect many of us have seen the gorgeous, bright pink flowers of the silk floss tree, but have you ever seen that same tree in yellow and brown? I spotted this beautiful specimen at the South Coast Botanic Gardens this past weekend. One might expect the yellow flowers to turn brown as they’re drying up and ready […]

Thick as Bees

Buzzing, darting about, causing people to quickly duck, were what I assumed to be dozens of large bumble bees swarming on the purple salvia. Except  they weren’t bees at all. Those frantic creatures were hummingbirds! I’ve never seen them gathered in such numbers as I saw at the South Coast Botanic Gardens this past weekend. I tried snapping clear, posed pictures, but it was […]

South Coast Botanic Gardens in Yellow

The past three days were packed with multiple events I was invited to, all on the west side of Los Angeles, so I stayed at my son’s place. I did manage to grab a few free hours Saturday morning, though, for a long-overdue visit to a favorite place on that side of town, the South Coast Botanic Gardens in Rancho Palos Verdes. As […]

“Perky Pink Plumeria”

Growing in the greenhouse at South Coast Botanic Garden in Rancho Palos Verdes, this little plumeria caught my eye. It reminded me to a time in elementary school (just a few years ago) when the “in” thing with the very artistic crayon crowd was to carefully outline each shape in our pictures. This particular pretty, […]

A Garden For All Ages

Small children, grandchildren? I’m guessing they would love the children’s garden at South Coast Botanic Garden, on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, as much as you will! Nursery rhymes are displayed in a separate little garden area, near the entrance. Really adorable! For adults, it’s a great way to reminisce and spend some time out of touch […]

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
