Snippets from California

Some bits and bops from an earlier trip to San Diego and Los Angeles.

Flower market in Los Angeles.


Succulents in a moss teapot.


 Lovely scabiosa and antique hydrangea.


And a wide array of succulents...


Heart these stunning mercury glass products!!


The annual San Diego fair was well underway and I went to take a look at the garden section. 

Here are popular roses that people grow in their gardens.
  


Gardeners also entered their flowers in the various categories of competitions. Here is one of the winners, a lovely ivory and pink bi-colour roses.


Just love when roses open up like these ones.


A very sweet peach colour rose and a pale yellow one that look awfully like a peony!


At first, thought this is either a clematis or anemone specie. But this is actually a rose, there are quite a few single petal varieties.


And dahlias!!!


Some of them were just enormous, each bloom is like 9 inches wide.


And a sweet pale yellow and blush bi-colour specie.


Some cute greenery.


Saw a sea of succulents outside a mall... these just look so perfect!


And some in a very chic dark burgundy shade and another greyish variety.


And a tall vase with giant succulents.


Will be blogging about an amazing master floral class with Karen Tran Florals next, so flower lovers, make sure you stay tuned!
