Mothers day at the L.A. Arboretum

~Yesterday we spent a Beautiful day at the L.A. Arboretum.
Because it's a ever growing nature reserve and bird sanctuary on 127 acres, it always changing. So coming back every year for Mothers Day is still a treat!
This year we invited our close friends; Teresa, Rob and Sydney.
There are different areas, "lands" as what I call them. For instance in "Australia" you will walk around and view native plants to that area. Then there is Africa, Asia, A Rain Forest and so on....
My favorite parts of the day were seeing the roses in full bloom near Queen Anne's Cottage and have a picnic lunch spread out under a 200 year old pepper tree.
Please enjoy some of my favorite photos, (3 were taken by my husband, the rest by me) and click on any for a close up!

I used to live in Arcadia where the arboretum is located! How nice to take a trip through it with you! Did you get a glimpse of the Queen Anne Cottage?? Recalls the saying "De plane, de plane"!!!

Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
