This post is about the lead-up to finding the Ennis House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, in Los Angeles (in 2010). We don’t remember much of that day but from the photo-dates it appears we found our way there the same day we visited Hollyhock House. We remember spending time in Los Feliz and loving it there. One of the most memorable things was as we were walking along a street on our way to find the Ennis House, we passed some plants and as I was looking at them I realised I could see a hummingbird hovering! We’d never seen one before (I hadn’t even realised they were in LA) so it was a wonderful and exciting, surprise discovery, to see a hummingbird there in front of us!

In memory of the hummingbird I’m sharing a colourful hummingbird that’s displayed on the wall at our local cafe in Tapanui .. ‘Top Nosh’.
Here’s a distant view of the Ennis House taken as we were walking away (the following photos were all taken as we were leaving).
Gorgeous bougainvillea and lemon tree. So idyllic!
And an interesting, enticing special gate.
