Some fun stuff I liked lately (some from TW):
~ Apparently the new Doctor Who team is going to NY? (dude, are they going to come to LA? Bueller?)
~ How to Train Your Dragon is totally adorable. The dragons are like cats and the vikings have yarn-hair. Recommend!
~ Michael Caine kicking ass? Yes, please.
~ Twilight Modern Warfare 2 (what it says on the tin. SO funny)
~ Galactic Empire State of Mind
~ Tokyo in HDR photos (totally gives me nostalgia)
~ interesting tea-colored ruffled vest at TopShop
~ This Anthropologie cardigan makes me want to applique crap on my cheapo Old Navy hoodies.

Would still love some feedback on my previous post if you have time! :)

one of my wisteria plants is blooming! (the others are not... I wonder if I should worry about them... hmmm...)

Hi, folks!
One of my wisteria vines is also blooming! ... and here's another photo of Belle Story Rose!

More Balboa Park Sakura photos later. I took a ton... so... I need time to edit them and I'm just BEAT, BEAT!

Look at what I found in my baby sakura tree!
This bird nest is super super tiny! Is it a hummingbird nest? I put up a feeder in my yard,... I think maybe I should put up another one, too! I loooove hummingbirds. I'll plant some more hummingbird friendly plants when I get some time, too.

This is one of my little (planted in Dec) sakura trees. I'm not sure what type it is... at the nursery they told me it it was a double-pink... but it's blooming single white. But sometimes people say it doesn't bloom what it is the first year. I don't really mind either way, I like both types (though I'd prefer a pink since my other tree is definitely a white!) I'm super happy that it looks like it's actually going to bloom a decent amount soon! So hopefully that means it's doing well.

I hope I get to see THIS this year.

usually: ~~~~~~
Huntington's Plums and Chinese Magnolia bloom around NOW (eep! must find time to go!)
SCHABARUM's plums bloom after,... closer to the end of the month.
Huntington's sakura blooms around March 2nd-7th or so....
and Van Nuy's sakura blooms around approx March 12th-ish.
Wisteria usually being after the sakura dies down.

what this means is I probably need to go to Huntington this weekend... and I need to start obsessing about what I'll wear for sakura season this year.

So, this is what I bought to read on the plane to Japan:
- Nana V.9
- Love*Com V.5
- Fruits Basket V.19

What will Mitch be reading?
- "Under the Loving Care of the Fatherly Leader" by Bradley K Martin (about North Korea)
- "The French Revolution: A Very Short Introduction" by William Doyle.
(his other top choice was "Hitler and Stalin: Parallel Lives" by Alan Bullock)

I think it's pretty funny the difference in what we chose to read, huh? I love that my husband is bookish. I like nerdy boys. XD (to be fair, I will probably read the French Revolution book after him, and I will enjoy listening to his commentary on the N. Korea book.)
however,... I'm not sure how I will be able to stand waiting till the plane ride to read my girly manga.

a few photos from Huntington Gardens today )
