Correction: The below description of lilac bushes should instead read wisteria vine. Thanks to Patrica for noticing my error!
It has been one year since I got my job out of town, making me a bus commuter to Santa Barbara.
This is my view as I wait for the bus ride home in the afternoon: the Santa Barbara County Courthouse. It is a beautiful building and the grounds are lovely too. Let me take you around the back...
Each of these clusters was about 12 inches long.
Look how beautiful up close.
On another part of the grounds is this lovely flowering tree. No idea what it is, sorry! I disturbed a mom with her baby who were relaxing in the shade on a quilt.
The blooms are as large as my palm. Next to it is another Trumpet Tree like I showed last year.
It is nearly done blooming, but the remaining daffodil-like yellow flowers are still pretty.
One final closer photo of the rather impressive-sized bougainvillea at the base of the clocktower. It isn't blooming as prettily as some around the city, but is nice to look at anyway. And now, more baby spam.
Grandson Cove is one month old today! I held him for an hour this evening after work while my daughter caught a much-needed nap. Love that Mimi time!
