So I had a little change of events on Friday.
I was hoping to post some colorful blooms freshly cut from the local Botanical Garden Center.
Had the whole afternoon planned out.
My mother-in-law was sure to be in for a treat...
Friday, apparently, was the one day out of the year that they close...
Or so I was told by the nice lady who told me to leave.
Unless I was a vendor participating in their Garden Festival over the weekend, I could not enter.
So we had lunch.
A little bummed, yes.
The day was far from ruined.
Enter Laguna Gloria Art Museum.
A lovely, restored villa built in 1916.
There is a lovely local Art Gallery inside.
I found out they also have a little bistro that I will have to try on my next venture.
Food, art, and vintage villas... just a few of my favorite things!
I could stroll for hours in the gardens around the property.
Mayfield Park is also a stone throw away.
I'll have to visit soon.
They have peacocks and gold fish ponds!
It was a lovely afternoon...
I guess I can even say I'm glad the nice lady at the Botanical Gardens told me to leave.
I'll just go visit that nice lady again real soon.
P.S. I also just wanted to thank everyone for all of your sweet comments. I adore hearing from you and can't tell you how much it makes my day.
