Under the benevolent shade of the camphor tree, the bloggers met up in Sunnyslope Park. Said camphor tree was also dropping bits of its flowers into my carefully-crafted spinach dip, adding a ‘special organic’ quality to the dish. I was too busy being a person to be a blogger, so I didn’t snap a single photo. I got caught up talking to the husband of Pasadena Daily Photo and Palm Axis, so wasn’t able to talk to Frazgo as much as I wanted.
It was a pleasure to meet The Real Zajac and Caltechgirl and Tim from altadenablog and Mickie, reigning Doo Dah queen who wore her tiara and who blogs here and here. We love royalty of any kind here in the Crown City. We admire public displays of tiaras.
I enjoyed seeing Doug and Kathy and Jill and Gavin. Jill has been blogging about blended families here and about All Things Wonderful and Domestic here. So if you’ve been missing her, and her wonderful photography at Eye Level Pasadena, check out those other two blogs. Jill is really the Blog Mama of Pasadena. It was she who first compiled a list of the bloggers and she who convened the first two picnics. Her office hours were great for tech help and just general hanging out. Jill brought a loaf of her sourdough bread to the picnic and you’dve sworn Nancy Silverton made it.
