I recently visited the Los Angeles Arboretum to see a display of Cymbidium Orchids
and attend a demonstration on the care of these beautiful flowers.
It was a very overcast and chilly day and I thought seeing beautiful flowers would be
perfect for a day like this.
You might remember that I was at the Arboretum last August and showed you the
house where the television show Fantasy Island was filmed and later the first
Meet The Fockers film was also shot. When they finished production on the “Fockers”
film they painted the house back to the original Fantasy Island colors. You can visit
that post and read about it HERE.
When I arrived I was greeted by an old friend...
After greeting the peacock(who wouldn’t leave me alone)I went inside to the Orchid
display. It wasn’t a huge fancy show but the orchids were gorgeous!
After the care and planting demonstration, I went back outside where my feathered
friend was waiting and ready to show its beautiful peacock feathers...
Because it is too early in the season for much garden color and it was chilly outside,
I didn’t wander around as much as usual. However, there were other feathered friends
who insisted on saying hello....
And a family of Ducks...
Visiting the Arboretum is always a delight and I look forward to later in the spring and
summer visiting the waterfalls again and other flower displays.
Now about the giveaway,
