Place: Mary's grotto at Mission San Diego......

This Mary statue located in a serene corner of the Mission San Diego....under a lush fig, surrounded by perennially-blooming flower beds was my go-to place for three years........during my entire residency in San Diego...
This Hindu girl used to go crazy if she did not visit this place at least twice a week....:)
I used to relax on the wooden bench in the lawn, sniffing the heavenly citrus blooms, basking in the beauty of quince, magnolia, jacaranda, bougainvillea, daisy, hibiscus, pomegranate, lily blossoms..while listening to the hummingbirds, warblers.....
Sometimes, I used to remove the stale flowers from the statue and made bouquets from the fresh flowers.....




It was bliss........
Few days back we left San Diego for our new house in Irvine...and I miss this place the most....
