So I couldn't resist but borrow a famous line spoken by Meryl Streep to Ann Hathaway in The Devil Wears Prada for today's title. I am a big fan of Meryl and strongly encourage you to see, if you have not, It's Complicated. It reinstates my love for California!
Today I want to share some more of my recent trip with Carlo to Descanso Gardens. I just counted the number of pictures combined that we took in our 5 hour tour. 519! What can I say? Both shutterbugs are we! This is common for us...just *click* away all day!
Let me show you more of this beautiful place...
First I present one of Pasadena's Showcase Homes for your viewing pleasure.
|The Boddy House. Built in 1937|
|some cool succulents filling a container|
|I am a sucker for anything KiWi related! Here is a succulent with that name|
You may want to move in!
|Where does this door lead??|
Get ready...This really is spectacular! I have seen some beautiful homes throughout my travels, but this took my breath away.
|Behind the Looking Glass...|
|Living room...freshly decorated|
|OH MY mother-of-PEARL|
|I'm ready to write my cook book!!!!|
Now when I travel I really take my time to see as many details as possible. I am a plant-a-holic! I can't help it...so here you are always going to see lots of gardens...
|Kalanchoe 'SiLVER PLATTER': hubba hubba|
|A beautifully designed and living Garden Wall|
|Reminds me of Provence, France|
To round this second story from Descanso out, let's leave with a poetic thought:
Some times are hard
Some times are sad
Let's wake up in the morning
and climb into a hopeful bed.
For to be radiant when all is well
...when the days are good
is easy to tell.
Your petals unblemished and untested by the wind.
To fall far down
and still BLOOM
is where the secret lies.
Your heart the safe and strengthened haven
where your true beauty resides.
Have a good night friends,
