Los Angeles - Je t'aime!

"Le Weekend" of Mother's Day found us in Los Angeles, California. One of the highlights was a visit to the Getty Museum.

The current exhibition, "Paris Life & Luxury". documents a day in the life of fashionable 18th century Parisians. Entrez svp.

Pardonez-moi, no cameras allowed in the exhibit. But one of the posters(pictured above) hints at the exquisite tableau's of 18th century treasures such as paintings, drawings, textiles, dress, and books.

Even the Getty's Central Garden had it's Paris face on - with the azalea pool maze, parterres of native California plants and bougainvillea umbrellas.

In the garden, the designer - Robert Irwin has combined stone and water into a natural sound and light show.

The Pièce de Résistance!

Thanks to our pretty tour guide and daughter - Merci


  1. Hello Marjorie:
    What a wonderful time you must have had at the Getty Museum and the exhibition sounds to have been delightfully fascinating.

    The gardens look most interesting. We love the cascade of water. Most impressive!

  2. Waht a wonderful time and exhibition. I have never been to LA, and the Getty Museum has now given me an excuse.
