Stops Along The Way

On her western trip, Judy admires garden at eastern state line into Utah.

Rose Bowl Parade


A Gardener's Treat

  Linda Hardie and Terra Manton were WOWED by

seeing floats being constructed and viewing the 130th Rose Bowl Parade down Colorado Ave. in Pasadena, California.

The following day included a “walk around” to see floats up close.

The festivities were well worth a trip to sunny Southern California for a few days to start the new year!


'The Melody of Life'

The theme for 2019 was depicted in all the floats.

Roses and orchids were in prominent display.


Nature on Parade

All materials on the floats were organic, with such minute elements as onion seeds and lentils, in addition to millions of flowers.
