Not 100% today, so ... my back-up ...











And a re-post from Day 521: December 29, 2013 ... 
everything looks the same, maybe taller.




View from the adjacent Peter's Canyon elementary school, approaching the park





The City has it posted as Cedar Grove Park ...
home to a beautiful grove of magnificent Cedars.




But, those of us in the know, know the real name
it is actually Grandma's Park!
My park!




So named by my grandson's (before they were Grandhunks)
... back when they were tiny & visited often.




They liked Grandma's Park. 




A lot of people still do.




In case you don't get to see cedars ...




here's a close-up ...




can you almost smell it?




How about a tour?




It's a hidden treasure, so this is just between you and me.




This field is usually filled with la crosse and more.




The City of Tustin places a high priority on schools and parks ...



well used, but rarely crowded. This park offers ...


Nature trail
Basketball (2-1/2 courts)
Restrooms
Playground equipment
On-site parking
Regional trail access
2 Grass volleyball courts





A wonderful space, hidden in busy Orange County.




This large stand of tall cedars has
a path and scattered picnic tables ...




gorgeous! 
And, if you can do a back-bend ...





you can look straight up to the tree tops!
Google says there are many types of cedar trees.
I believe these are Deodar Cedar.
An excellent evergreen with graceful pendulous branches.







Pyramidal form when young, wide-spreading
and flat topped in old age, often reaching 70' in height.




There other trees, and a eucalyptus stand.






All this and just a short block from home. 
Blessed indeed.










A smile for Saturday ...

I guess it's always snowing somewhere?
Today I know for sure it's snowing there ...

A wonderful 5 day trip with good friends.






By the time you read this, 
the superheroes will be flying home.



 





... and this will happen tomorrow, can you make it?
