The One with the LA County Arboretum & Botanic Garden


Wednesday, March 16, 2011

Every third Tuesday of the month admission is free to the Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden. Chris was at school from 7am to 8pm yesterday so I had to entertain myself and Fox all day so we went - why ever not?!?

It's a well-known fact: I'm obsessed with all animals in all their varieties. Just visit our zoo, I mean, apartment and you'll see I speak no lies. So when the first thing I saw upon entering the gardens was a gorgeous peacock, I was pretty stoked.

Such a pretty shade of blue!

Then we walked a little bit further and this guy was blocking the road:

Peacocks everywhere!
And then I turned another corner and this peacock was showing off his feathers!

His backside.

I was seriously considering going home after seeing this - I felt complete! But I trudged on and saw lots of other neat things.

Poor female birds always get the shaft in prettiness.

Lizard!

Another lizard!

I don't really have captions for the rest of my photos, they're just things I thought were pretty and interesting.

Saw these pretty tile works of art on the way out.

I forgot to grab a map at the entrance, but I'm pretty sure I only made a tiny dent in "to see and do" at the Arboretum. Definitely gonna have to go back next month!
