Green Meanie and CaliforniaPeggy...
In an art museum?

The Huntington, no less?

Yup.

Have a look!

Sorry the indoor pics are blurry; this is what happens when you can't use the flash!

Still, we had a ball!

4. My dear Swede!
We did!

It was hot, though...

So we strolled the gardens before noon, and then vanished into those wonderful air conditioned buildings after a nice lunch...

Thanks, sweetie...

Thanks, sweetie!

Yeah, that one reminded me so much of the lily ponds at Monet's gardens in Giverny, France!

I've been told the Huntington is a must-see, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

It really is gorgeous!

The gardens are lovely!

So many things are in bloom...

But it's so damn hot!

We still had a ball, nevertheless...

Good to see you tonight!

Glad you had a moment to come by...

17. Lovely pics Peg!
I'm happy to see that your indoor shots turned out as well as they did. You have a very steady hand, my friend!

The pond photo turned out particularly well and I just love the grape vine framed backside of Dionysus. Surrounded by such beauty, it becomes a challenge not to take great photos.

After parting ways, although a bit withered, we managed to hoof it through the Japanese Garden over to the new Chinese Garden. It was absolutely spectacular! You MUST go for another visit with your camera, but in the early spring when it's not so damn hot!

Thanks for making the trip up to join us. We all enjoyed the meetup!

:hug:

:loveya:

19. My dear Green Meanie!
Hey, it's about time you showed up, sweetie!

I was thinking about calling you to let you know the thread was going...

I was soooooooooo tired yesterday, I wasn't sure I was going to do it, but dinner gave me a second wind!

Thanks for your compliments too...

The indoor pics are blurry, alas...

The ones I posted aren't too bad. Blue Boy was unacceptably blurry, so he got left out!

I'm sure the Chinese and Japanese gardens were amazing...Glad you were able to see them...

My husband was really glad he'd come along and we both had the BEST time!

:hug:

:loveya:

21. My dear blueknight!
Oh, thanks!

I suspect our radiance was due to being rather hot and sweaty...it was a very warm, humid day!

The museum is one of the most wonderful places in Los Angeles...
