SUBTROPICAL

 

Palm trees, subtropical flowers, high rise buildings, freeway signs, big mall areas are so much the pleasant part of the Los Angeles basin where I lived for three decades. The less pleasant part are the traffic jams, waiting for more than an hour at any restaurant in the weekends.

A few weeks ago I heard from a Canadian musician (Joshua Mills), that when he was a little boy one of his biggest wishes was to see palm trees and subtropical flowers. This was the inspiration for this post.

Jacaranda

Did not realize how many subtropical flowers are a such a common sight in Southern California: Agapanthus, Jacaranda, Bougainvillea. Bromeliads

Don’t know if Koi are considered subtropical, but these live in the waters of the Huntington Library in Pasedena

When some people treated me like a (rich) cosmopolitan when I lived in the suburbs of LA, I dreaded nothing more,  so I started responding,  “I live in California.”  “Where?” “In the city …by the way ….I like your …”
Am not a cosmopolitan. I like old, but not broken. Hubs just fixed this for me. (Tue Treasures)

    Do you mean, if there is a sale at Target? (Guess you don’t mean if the store Target is for sale?) Since my kids have grown and on their own, I hardly come there anymore:) Decisions, decisions! If your daughter got burned out from swimming, I would keep an eye on her:)
