There's nothing like having a friend visiting L.A. to use as an excuse to take in the delights of The Getty Center and the Getty Villa.
Even this late in the season the beautifully landscaped gardens are still a riot of colour at The Getty.
There's nothing like taking a relaxing stroll around the Central Garden under a lovely clear blue Californian sky.
And even though our visit to the Getty Villa was slightly more overcast, it didn't stop some water lilies opening up to enjoy the sun's rays that did break through.
As always it was nice to take in all the outdoor sculptures at The Getty, especially the new Boy with Frog sculpture.
If you like these colourful images, be sure to checkout my previous visits to The Getty's Central Garden.
Until next time...
