The Cove, La Jolla, San Diego

The cove in La Jolla.
The Cove, in La Jolla is one of the most beautiful beaches of San Diego .The water is always a wonderful bluish green hue to it that is different from other beaches.  The Contemporary Museum of Art is here, as are wonderful restaurants and shops.  I noticed that this is where the La Jolla Bridge club is located also.Today with Tsunami warnings everywhere on the coastline of the Pacific, and the devastating quake in Japan the Pacific coastline is very dangerous.  My heart goes out to the people of Japan, and also all the people affected by this disaster, now all over the world.

One hundred years ago, this type of disaster would have killed many more, as there was no warning system for Tsunamis.   Before telephones, and telegraph, this disaster would have been much more devastating to the entire world. It’s hard to imagine today, with all the technology and globalization, what it would be like to have no warning system at all.

Grandma’s Flowers

It’s no wonder I have a love for flowers!  My Grandmother has gorgeous flowers at her house, as does my mother, and both my aunts.  There were always flowers around in my childhood.    I was talking with someone the other day and there are so many to choose from, that it’s hard to pick a favorite.
My Grandmother has beautiful flowers throughout the yard.  There are camillias, Gerbera daisies, Begonia’s, Birds of Paradise, and roses of course.  Many of which are tree’s too which bloom, like dogwood, fig, and plum.  
Begonia, beautiful, bright and pink.

Daphne Bouquet.

I made a bouquet of Daphne recently and I love this flower so much.   I know I go on and on about it.  It’s a perfect winter flower.  It’s actually a big bush, and blooms quite a lot.
Daphne a winter flower and bush.
Daphne is beautiful and smells even better.
