Monday Morning Flowers and Weekend Update






Hi everybody!

Hope you had a great weekend and are looking forward to a wonderful week.




This past weekend I went to Descanso Gardens in La Canada, Flintridge (near Los Angeles).




It was a gorgeous day and the surroundings were magnificent.

Even the bunnies were out to greet us!



I went with a Certain Very Nice Man who was kind enough to take my picture here by a stream.

It was such a fun day!




Thanks so much to all my blogging buddies for all your support and love!  

I appreciate it so much.


Hope you have a beautiful week!


A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.

good for you and the Certain Very Nice Man. and what is that beautiful flowering tree?

Alison said...

You're very good at getting out of the house, for a lonely single girl. That last flower is intriguingly beautiful, what is it?

How very pretty!

ACVNM sounds like a keeper. Beautiful photos, including the one that you didn't take but were in. And I absolutely love the true friend quotation. So true.
