A Morning Arboretum Walk

Hi all–  On Saturday, a group of friends trekked up to the L.A. Arboretum for a morning walk through the grounds.  Dot, our smiling docent, filled us in on the plantings from near and far, and detailed the history of the original owner of the grounds, the colorful Lucky Baldwin.

We explored the Baldwin Victorian Cottage…

Thankful for the day out in the warm sun to walk and talk with dear old friends.

    • HI Daisy– it was beautiful in spots, but other parts were showing lack of water here. But I just loved being outdoors all morning walking & talking with friends. Don’t do that often enough! Hope you’re in the middle of a wonderful weekend Daisy. xox
