Halloween & More @ Lauritzen Garden

Halloween Tree Saturday October 31st, 09 - Jose Patino and I spent Halloween afternoon at
  the Lauritzen Gardens observing the Ghoulish Garden trick or treat Adventure for
  Children, enjoying the fall color of the Victorian Garden and Japanese-inspired
  Landscaping of the indoor Fall Chrysanthemum Show. Also it was my last visited
  to Architecture Wonder of the World exhibit.
