Balboa Park: Rose Garden

This is yet another part in my vacation from long, long ago now. I'm still reliving it, shush. You can see me in Chinatown,  on Santa Monica Pier, pointing at tree-dinosaurs on the street, and gorging myself!

Mugdha had a post on Balboa in her blog here and it became on of the places that I really wanted to go! We got to go listen to a organ performance... it was very classic and eerie... but we eventually got bored. The performance was free but it took place in the sun. Profits were made from these umbrellas.

After that, I whined like a child and we all walked to the rose garden. It was kind of funny because directly across from the rose garden was a desert garden... which looked like an Arizona backyard. We all had a hearty laugh and headed towards the roses. Cue gratuitous pictures. Since you all know that I am NOT a photographer, it's obvious to tell that these were taken by Mugdha, not me. 

Not bad, right? My favvvvvvorite are these two here. 

I'm not a huge flower person, but there's just something sappily beautiful about a hot afternoon, a cool flower patch and some pretty flowers. 

We got to sit on the benches behind this last photo and just... enjoy.

  6. What a pretty rose garden! And it doesn't matter that these pictures from a while ago, because it was still a fun vacation, right? :)

    How is Mugdha doing by the way? You should tell her to get back on Blogger!
