The Others At The Sherman Gardens

These are photos of the other plants and flowers besides the roses at

I think this is the 'Casablanca' lily. I was told this is Donna Karan's
favorite flower.


'The Thorn of Christ'

A catus flower




Can you see the two turtles on the rock? I couldn't resist sharing this photo with you.

This is 'Golden Catepillar'. Mon amour pointed this out. I would have missed it.


We had lunch at the deli down the street under this colorful umbrella.

Ah Corona Del Mar ....so lovely. The streetscape looks very inviting. I am longing for some Summer outdoor dining. I also loved the fushia. I used to try and grow them as a little girl Their stunning colours really appealed to me. I seem to remember they needed heaps of water so they didn't last well in the hot Summer here...but oh so pretty
