Fullerton Arboretum


            This is one of the magnificent blooms on hundreds of plants and flowers at the Fullerton
            Arboretum in Fullerton, California. This bloom is so perfectly shabby chic and I found
            others in the rose garden that called out shabby chic to me this week.
                                             

                                  Talk about ruffles and shabby chic. This blew me away.

                      If you like purple and burgundy, there was plenty of those colors, too.

And this beautiful orange rose.
There were lots of other beautiful plants there besides roses.
And some beautiful peaceful sights as well. Perfect for a picnic.



Look at the shabby little wrinkles.

These look like mini dragons to me. This is called Golden
 Columbine.


                                            This is a surprise as you enter The Arboretum.

There are many critters for the kiddies to observe.


Lush grounds. The Arboretum is 26 acres.

One of my favorite colors.

The Fullerton Arboretum is admission free and open from 8:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. daily.
It is located at 1900 Associated Road in Fullerton, California.

I haven't been to Fullerton in a long time. But I love a good arboretum. Cute creatures are icing on the cake. I've been away from blogging for a while. Feels good to find a little normal again. Thank you for you kind words on my recent (and very behind) blog post.

Happy Monday,
Ruben
