Descanso Gardens

If you are ever in the Los Angeles area in spring time, I'd recommend that you visit the Descanso Gardens. I went there over the weekend, and it was positively BURSTING with flowers. Here are some of the pictures that I took.

wow! so nice to see the colours of summer. We're still stuck in early spring with cold temps and grey skies. Your weather is a source of much envy...it's hard being a stoic canadian sometimes......

i would LOVE to go there! we are getting a botanical garden in our little town, it will be nothing like this garden i'm sure. you're a great photographer. i take lots of pictures of the flowers/plants in our yard and i know how hard it can be to get a good shot. have you always been a photographer? did you take classes?

Diana said...

I love it when you take photos. The first one is my favorite- the bee!

frenchie said...

right now i hate you just a little bit.
why? because it is about 50F in London, raining and even though i am under my comforter, my nose is frozen cuz my radiator is broken.
and then you brag with some sun and heat packed photos...
whatever...off the the movie to see the last J-Lo movie. nah!
