I'm ending this little mini series of photos with scenes from the beautiful gardens of the San Juan Capistrano Mission. It has been blizzard conditions where I live for the past several days and is predicted to be 5 degrees by tonight, colder than normal for winter where I live. It has been PHUN for me to recall the color, beauty, peaceful surroundings, and especially the WARM weather when we toured this beautiful place!!!
P.S. HOWEVER YOU CELEBRATE,
PLEASE BE SAFE THIS NEW YEAR'S EVE!
(Have you ever seen an artichoke plant????? Me neither! I threw this photo in because the mission also had a beautiful vegetable garden, and even though I grew up in California, I've never seen one of these plants although I love to eat artichokes drenched in lemon butter.......yum!)
