When you say Pasadena most people think of roses

and the Rose Parade

The headquarters for the Rose Parade is a

beautiful grand estate with a rose gazebo at

the back of the property

This is a nice place to stop by for some peaceful time.

Another place to go in Pasadena is

the Norton Simon Museum

the entrance alone is a sight to behold with

this fabulous sculpture and this beautiful

Natal Coral tree that is a sculpture  by Mother Nature.

When I think of Pasadena I think of

the place to go for flowers since 1966, known as

a Southern California tradition.

The garage greets you with a large display of

plants and trees

Nice display of a FERMOBUSA

Luxembourg bench as you make your way

into the store

past arrangements waiting to be delivered

to some happy customer

Once your inside you are taken with the immenseness

of the space that once was a Cadillac dealership.

The greenhouse is home to a large collection of

orchid plants

you can choose from something small and simple

to something large and dramatic

They have created a little cafe to showcase

the  FERMOBUSA  bistro collection

so inviting I wanted to sit down and order a latte

Once you buy some flowers you need something

to put them in and there are no lack of choices



and something for the garden

I would say Pasadena is a good place to explore.

             never need bread.
