Peacocks, and Flowers and Turtles, Oh My!


Here are some more pictures from our recent trip to the Los Angeles Arboretum and Botanical Gardens.



Just in case you thought those beautiful peacocks running all over the place don't check themselves out when they get bored with human adulation, we came around the corner to find this one making sure all his feathers were in the right place.




I am a sucker for a beautiful, simple flower, just blooming and making the world a more beautiful place.




Are you doing enough of this during your busy summer?

No surprise a peacock would be vain!

Wonderful photos! That turtle sunning himself looks so blissful. :)

I've been to LA but did not go there, it looks a great place to visit.
Awesome pictures and a pleasure to read.

Who knew peacocks were so vain. Too funny. Is that a yoga pose that turtle is doing?

Morning BB
Now we see how the term proud as a peacock came about.
That dude is surely checking out himself.
Oh....we aren't doing much sunning here just lots of nesting and roosting and avoid flying debris and dust.
Hugs and FYI we are so glad you are back

I desperately want to be that turtle.
