A Little Piece of Paradise-A Favorite Place To Be

Mr. COS and I visited our friends Penny and Bill and I took
these photos of their 'little piece of paradise' in San Diego County
in California.

This plant is native to California.


A respite for tea in the afternoon

A pool and pool house


A magnificent 180 degree view



A chorus of cacti

Thorny the protector

A magical place

Loving this garden in the sun. Oh how I miss Summer. The only saving grace is the ski season has begun with a bang this year.It's freezing.
Have a great weekend
Best Carolyn
