Place: Hiking at O'Neill regional park.......

O'Neill regional park in Rancho Santa Margarita, is barely 10 miles from our Mission Viejo place..
On a recent weekend, we hiked there.....

Matilija poppy were in bloom.......golden top and crepe white petals were a sight to behold!

Saw a couple of ground squirrel babies, peeping from their burrow, under an eucalyptus grove......

Rain has created an art on eucalyptus bark.....

Someone has put painted rocks on the trees lining the trail......its a spectacled kitty...

Saw some tree squirrels.......

California buckthorns graced the edges of the cliffs......

Vantage points offered wide view of the Saddleback mountain...



Pine cones were carpeting the ground...

Loved the hike..will do again soon......

House: Garden flowers......

My present apartment has a decent-sized backyard...and it gets ample sunlight.....
I have been able to grow a variety of flowers.......

House: Fireplace mantel..........

I had always wanted a fireplace mantel...imparts a dreamy feel..
In South California, we don't really need it....
But our new apartment, which was built in the 80s' has one..........nice place to display the souvenirs or gifts accumulated over the years..

Thought: Memento from Mission San Diego.......

I am neither religious not Christian, but Mission San Diego occupies a special place in my heart..
I have spent three years visiting this place..every few days...

While we were about to leave Mission Valley, where its situated in San Diego, I collected some succulent twigs and planted in my patio garden..Its  a foot-high plant now..and has produced several progenies...

Observation: Good things in life........

Best things in life are free...............I agree to it...

Breeze, rain, grass, bird chirping, sunset, simmering water, flowers............
