Getty, Shanghai.

Every day in California is glorious.  In the mornings, Julia - our host, walks outside onto her porch wondering what the weather is going to be like that day.  I laugh and say, it is just different shades of absolutely beautiful.  Because of the heavy winter rains, everything's green and in bloom.  There is not a trace of humidity and nothing feels better than taking a nap in a patch of sun.  Oranges and lilies grow in Julia backyard.  There is even a pet turtle that wanders by.  I eat chocolates from Trader Joe's. 

On Tuesday, we made it out to the Getty where we toured the gardens.  There were so many usual and unusual plants growing in the garden.  We were looking for the Shazam! app for plants, but we couldn't find it.  There was a family of ducks swimming around the central water pond thing and I commented that this fowl family had the best real estate in all of Los Angeles.

Edda was not impressed.  OK maybe she was impressed, but didn't want to acknowledge it.

Going to the galleries was an afterthought, we were a little short on time and had to skedaddle - but we went and saw Vincent's famous Iris painting.

We are getting hundreds of photos from our Vince's China trip.  I'm having trouble downloading photos, but my parents did manage to see Vince and his friends at my mom's high school and they spent the day in Shanghai.  Will post some photos soon.

Van Gogh's Irises - We visited the garden at the asylum in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence where Van Gogh created that painting!
