The Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanical Garden
April 11 2016
Ever since I became obsessed with anti-aging (that would be last year), I’ve been doing the things that they tell you to do to look and feel “young”. Aside from all the creams and health foods, it appears that every research points to exercise being the number one component in staying young and healthy. Since I don’t go to the gym, I’ve been looking for ways to work out without getting bored. So yesterday, I decided to visit the Los Angeles County Arboretum to fulfill the exercise criteria and also to meet the inspirational need.
It was a lovely sunny day, and here are some highlights from the trip.
Upon arriving, we were greeted by the peacocks. There were a lot of them on the ground, and they weren't shy about approaching you. They were beautiful, but the squawking was loud and disturbing.
I didn't know that peacocks could fly and perch high up in a tree.
Of course, the flora:
Queen Anne Cottage:
It was a beautiful grand acreage: lush and green, and many places to sit and admire the view and also to wander around. After three hours of walking and admiring, I was sufficiently tired and felt that I got my beauty regiment quota for the day. :)
FYI- It is best to come early to get parking, but if the first parking lot is full, there is a second lot right next to it.
