Enter: 34°26’54.67″ N 119°20’18.07″ W    into Google Earth.  Above Ojai valley in California, the Spring rains made the creeks revive with rushing water and singing frogs while the blossoms were full and vivid.  These gardens, maintained by the folks who own the local ‘Green and Blue Iguana’ hotels, are filled with exotic plants.  These pictures give but the merest hint of the quiet presence that pervades these gardens.  I wonder if the absence of other people had something to do with it.

Listen to this excerpt while looking at the pictures.
