Pasadena Wine Festival and the Los Angeles County Arboretum

The Pasadena Wine Festival was an interesting event. They advertised 125 wines, food trucks, and music, and they delivered on all three. But the real attraction was the Los Angeles County Arboretum, which was in fine form. The day was stunning--hot, sunny, clear, then cooler and the sweet and herbal scents from the gardens mixed with the garlic fries, the sausages and the cheeses was heady and completely enticing.

It was a large crowd, the lines were present from about 3 o'clock on, expanding to just a bit too long about 6 pm. But we explored the Arboretum and found the lagoon where the Tarzan films were made, the Queen Anne Cottage that the builder of the Santa Anita Racetrack built, and thoroughly enjoyed the balmy, perfect evening. And we stumbled upon the hot air balloon for an added dramatic touch. How totally lovely an afternoon.
