Thinking of spring during these exceptionally cold days. A budding agapanthus flower from the Huntington Botanical Gardens, San Marino CA, June 2012.

While I was in Pasadena in May I loved seeing the flowering Blue Jacaranda all over the city. On a visit to the hills of Rancho Palos Verdes one day I was disappointed at first that the Jacaranda were not yet in bloom. Later in the evening, though, I thought the silhouette of this tree with its feathery leaves was quite beautiful.
Here’s another look at Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles. Taken in the lobby of the third floor. I love the warmth of the woods and how they visually echo the sounds of the strings in the concert hall.

What my husband likes about this is the way the bow of the bridge echoes the seagull.

Here’s a different perspective on the Huntington Botanical Gardens. This Agapanthus flower is shot against a backdrop of the Rose Garden which gives it that colorful bokeh.
