IT’S NATURE TIME!

Last week Hubby and I went to have an adventure at the Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Gardens. It was very pretty and the weather was great. Here are some pics:

Snowy mountains in the distance.

More snowy mountains in the distance.

Blossoms on a Manzanita plant.

Purple Sage.

Either holly or toyon berries, not sure which.

A cute little mushroom.

A cute little cactus.

A gray squirrel. These are native to California, but the Eastern Fox squirrel, which you see all over the place, have pushed this cute furry native out of its habitat so you mainly see them when you get closer to the mountains.

A cute little bird, although not sure what it is.

A California Thrasher, notice the long curved beak.

Hubby is demonstrating the camouflage capabilities of his plaid shirt. Can you spot him?

Hubby hiding again. He's like a chameleon!
