A Hot Walk In The Garden

It was destined to be a warm day but we went into the mouth of the dragon and visited The Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens where it was a balmy 97 degrees.  Please join us!

We we are there... Romance is in the air!

We had lunch at the Rose Tea Room on the premises and enjoyed their lite but filling buffet.

We then walked for almost two hours through the herb garden the rose garden the Japanese Garden and finally the Chinese Garden.

Deep in the bamboo forest!

We skipped the desert and the lower gardens because of time (and heat).

After the visit, we went VFR to Malarkey’s to meet up with Irene and Greg and catch up on things.  Joanna sent them a small bag of scones.  It was probably a reward for being smart and staying close to the ocean!

Thank you Joanna! See you soon!

We departed Malarkey’s at 7:00 and went home to the treadmill and Star Trek TV.  It was a busy day!

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
