Season: Another rainyday musing...

Out Irvine apartment....It is another soggy day in South California..........

Sit by the window..and reminisce...

Rain-streakd window..

Camellia in my garden being lashed by the rain..



The pine needles with crystal-like drops studded to them...

Passion: Vases with my garden flowers...........

Simple vases with flowers from my garden.......
California poppy.......
 Nasturtium........

Narcissus........what a heady fragrance it emits!

A stalk of Aeonium..

Two peltate leaves of nasturtium...

Mixed flowers.....

Place: Another summer day in La Jolla beach........

La Jolla beach, San Diego...
My spouse with a cousin's toddler son....the kid seems amused with the intrepid gull......

Sea lions are taking siesta under the rocks..a gull seems to harass them..

Rather placid Ocean...a paddleboarder in the distant..

A happy ground squirrel, who lives amidst the sea-figs draping the bluffs...it must have got one of the nicest views...

Observation: Tranquil lake-side house..

A lake-side house...on the shore of Lake Woodbridge, in our neighborhood..
With profuse mandevilla blooms, the porch looks stunning...


A red heart bauble hangs from one roof.....

And its the view from the porch...Santa Ana mountain borders the horizon...


Perfect setting for peaceful days anytime of the year...

Season: Rainy day shots.......

A rainy day in our house...........
Looking out from the bedroom window as rain lashes the mock-orange bushes.....

Pelting down on the Greater bird of paradise frond.......

Place: Nostalgia for Mission San Diego...........

I have often told how Mission San Diego, the old church, used to be hangout during our  San Diego stay..........
For three years, I played, roamed, and obtained serenity in this place.......
It's some pictures on a rainy day......
