I took this photo in the eastern Sierras, off Highway 395, at the Owens Gorge Road. I love those mailboxes and every time we travel to the Sierras, we drive by them just to see them!

ABC Wednesday 110508 P is for peacock

I grew up in Arcadia, CA, which is home of the LA County Arboretum. My parents' house was only 1 block away from the arboretum, in "The Rancho" area. We were one of the areas inhabited by the arboretum's peacocks. Everybody thought they were a nuisance, but I always loved them! To this day, if I hear a peacock, I think of my family home. Many ranches do have peacocks. They are great watchdogs! This handsome fellow was at the arboretum in 2005 when hubby and I went back for a visit. Isn't he gorgeous?

Neighbors had a peacock for a while. I was surprised to see it at the driveway when I came home from work one evening. I finally knew that there was no one torturing a cat in the neighborhood.

But they are beautiful and a great P.

This bird never read the comment 'Blue and green should never be seen!' Which is lucky for us!

I visit the aboretum frequently since I picked up my camera again. The peacocks are a favorite of mine though I haven't posted many pics of them. I haven't felt as if my photos do them justice.
