A Short Stroll

We had only a half hour to spare.  Descanso Gardens called to us and we answered.
I love strolling through the majestic California Live Oaks grove. 

Wooden Architecture



Rewood tree bark and needles remind us of our childhoods.


Near the exit, the heart-shaped autumn leaf thanked us for stopping by.

Glorious! I can smell the scents and hear the birds in the quiet sunshine.

Very pretty place to stroll! It is the perfect time to notice the bones of nature in the tree trunks!

I's always fascinated by Redwood and eucalyptus trees when we visit CA since we fdon't see them here. They smell so good!

Thirty glorious minutes :-) I don't often visit in the fall. Must try it sometime.

Like the way the trees make a natural arch to walk through.
