These beautiful photos of Huntington Gardens in San Marino were taken by my friend Scott Martelle, journalist, author and blogger.


The Huntington is one of the most beautiful places on earth. It has an extraordinary English rose garden, a Japanese garden, an Australian garden and a Chinese garden…


I want to go (and take my Holga 35 mm camera!)

What are you up to this weekend?

    This weekend for me? There's a big sale at my favourite knitting shop! And I'm baking an apple/blackberry pie!

  4. I just found your lovely blog… it is so beautiful. I find it so relaxing to look through. I love Huntington Gardens, these were my old stomping grounds! Wondering if the peacocks were still wandering freely around there?

    I love Holgas and Dianas! Your previous pictures you took are so amazing! Thank you… your blog has been a great way to unwind.

  5. What a beautiful place to explore! I am so swooning for a Holga or a Diana.

    I did have one practical question for you regarding them…where do you get the film for them???

    Can't wait to see more absolutely fabulous pics!!!!

  6. Oh my. It looks like such a wonderful place… And thanks for a always great blog, and for adding me to your blog-roll. I am so thrilled to be in such good company :-)
    Thank you – and hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  7. Absolutely heavenly. So peaceful. Would love to go there.

    My weekend is going quite "swell." I managed to drop my prized and pricey, belowed mascara down the toilet which resulted in the toilet blockage. Terry got real upset with me because I seem to worry more about the loss of the mascara than the toilet proble. Men, they will never understand.
