Queen Califia's Fall Leaves
Yesterday I visited Queen Califia's Magical Garden, a wonderful sculpture display in Escondido by artist Niki de Saint Phalle. I'd never taken the drive up to see it and was pleasantly surprised. It was a place for everyone, regardless of age, to let their imagination fly.
We settled in, spent a few hours there, having a picnic & letting the kids run around & play. The longer we were there, the more details popped out at us. It was really quite lovely! Strangely, though, I kept being drawn to these leaves on the ground - perhaps its odd to be taken by this monochromatic microcosm within the brightly colored mosaic garden, but I wasn't the only one to comment on the beauty of these leaves. I'll post some of the photos of the actual sculptures at another time - in fact, Felicia has posted about this place a few times and you can check out her lovely photos;
