Wednesday vignette 10/26/16

Some images from my visit to the Los Angeles County Arboretum last weekend.
I love that the botanical garden is big enough that they send jeeps out near closing to offer guests a ride back.

“Lucky” Baldwin’s Cottage emerges as if from an old home movie reel, nestled deep in the Arboretum.

I visited the geese and ducks for quite a while at Baldwin Lake (now at a perilously shallow 24 inches).

And named this palm Narcissus.

Every Wednesday I look forward to the musings of Anna at Flutter & Hum, our host for Wednesday Vignette.

    Great shots! I love that you named the palm – very appropriate.

    What a wonderfully ornate”cottage”. Lucky, indeed! It reminds me of a wonderful place on the west coast of Sweden where I briefly worked. At the time, it provided a welcome adult, sanity-restoring break from motherhood. You can check out the similarity here: http://www.villasjotorp.se

    Like Kris, I love that you named the palm. It’s so perfect, as it admires itself in the mirrored surface of the water. Hopefully though, your name won’t become a prediction. I would hate for the palm to die prematurely…

    Some lovely shots here! So nice to see your blue sky. Today has been very dark and wet here.

    Must get back there now that the heat has eased. Your photos convey a great sense of serenity.
