Looks like some scrumptious fruit! Wish I could have an orange tree in my Minnesota backyard! Fat chance.

I went there today after reading your blog this morning. I've driven by it hundreds of times and never knew it was there. Beautiful! I think one of my favourite parts was the aloe and cactus garden in the back corner. Thanks so much for sharing this with us. I can't wait to have a peaceful lunch there some day.

Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for commenting, Mona.

I've got a bit of a surprise in store about this photo. I hope it comes to fruition...

So thats the name! Thanks for the link. Zoom by area going Pasadena Ave to check out my friends in S. Pasadena. The rush from 710 to 134/ 210 makes it difficult to admire so must bike by & stop one day. Always love SGV gardens especially after El Nino rainy season :).

Keep dry & safe all.
