Hymn of Life: Tulips

I’ve been keeping these photos to show you on a Sunday. For me right now it’s Sunday afternoon in Spring yet for many of you it’ll be Sunday morning in Autumn! We found this magnificent sculpture in a public park near Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills. The wonderful thing is … we didn’t even know it was there, we just happened upon it while wandering aimlessly 🙂  Los Angeles USA, 2010.

Sculpture by Yayoi Kusama

We were so excited to find this wonderful, fantastical sculpture!

We were leaving the park when we noticed action on the outer edge. A couple were being filmed, dancing near a huge tree. Magic moment!

Before the sculpture, we’d been admiring some fabulous palms. That’s me standing under the streetlight. We LOVE LA and LA loved us right back 🙂

    1. Great fun! We felt so at home in LA, it was really like the city embraced us and we loved LA. It was bright, colourful, fun, lots of plants, friendly people, fab museums of course. We’d expected lots of concrete but there were gardens and parks everywhere and we just wandered around enjoying it all! Very pedestrian-friendly (much to our surprise).

    1. Aren’t they great! Last night I retweeted a photo of a daisy-shape flower by the same artist that is in the Grand Palais in Paris until Oct 20. Awesome work by this artist, and really fun 🙂
