                            It is really hard to pick my favorite Lake Arrowhead photo. I am one of those crazy people you see pulled over on the rim snapping photos of clouds.see photo below    Really I do love /like and even sometimes hate every season on the mountain.    Winter when I have to scrape my windshield—hate. But I sat outside in the snow the night before in awe!    Summer when I am out showing houses when I really want to be floating in Lake Gregory—hate. But I treasure the joy of sharing our mountains with those who have not seen its treasures.    Spring when I want to run around in the fields of wild flowers but am so allergic that I can’t –hate. I take lots of photos to enjoy that don’t make me sneeze.   And fall when the oak and dogwood leaves are wow. And then they f...

Visit My Photos - 17 PicsDaffodil Garden 2008 In Running Springs there is a wonderful area called Smiley Park. Smiley Park was hit hard by the recent So-Cal wildfires. I was taking pictures in the area a few weeks ago and this was one of the houses:   Today I was taking photos in the area again and visited the Daffodil Garden. I had heard the garden burned in the fire, but was hopeful that the flowers would bloom anyway. Much to my delight, the owner's home did not burn, the neighboring church did not burn and the Daffodils were spectacular! It was a wonderful day and a very special treat for me! The garden is open for a very limited time. Only from March 22, 2008 to April 6, 2008 and is open to visitors after 10am. If you've never been, you are missing a wonderful gift. You can see a l...
