Gallivanting in the Garden
Last Sunday was a day rotten to the core – rainy, gloomy, good for nothing but staying inside and hibernating. But then Monday did a complete hundred-and-eighty with sunny skies and balmy temperatures.
So I went to The Huntington. It’s a shame, I know, but I’d never been before. The Japanese Garden is closed for sprucing up, but the place is still plenty big to kill several hours.
In one corner I found piles and piles of wonderfully prickly cacti. They made me think of Dive.
For most part you’re allowed to walk on the grass too - that’s how I found these delightfully slimy shrooms. I think they are Velvet Foot Mushrooms, but won’t swear to it.
I found some stone children frolicking around – my favorite kind, they’re very quiet.
Stone people need stone chairs to sit on.
One of these days I need to go back to check out the library and the museum too.
