The Aboretum and Saving Mr. Banks

Yesterday, we visited the Arboretum.
It was the first Saturday of spring, and the weather was perfect.
Not too hot.  The cloudy marine layer lingered until we left.
I've been visiting the Arboretum since I can remember.
That's me on the far left.
The Arboretum is known for it's peacocks,
outdoor art,
flowers,
 herb gardens,
periwinkle (my favorite color),
 secret hiding places,
 
bird-attracting trees,
and spectacular views.
Coincidentally, we decided to watch the movie "Saving Mr. Banks" the night before.

Hey, that's the Santa Anita Depot at the Arboretum!
They also used the Rose Garden for some shots.
Those palm trees are a dead giveaway.
We had a wonderful few hours walking the grounds.
It was a great way to welcome spring.
Happy Spring!
