Monterey pine goes to Alpine

my little Christmas tree (a potted Monterey pine)
has been living in the patio for the last couple of weeks
since I know it won't thrive living in a pot
today I am giving it to a friend
his parents live in Alpine, California (San Diego County)
so he won't be very far...
and there they will plant it

farewell my dear tree friend
I will miss you!
but you will surely thrive living in the Alpine woods!

this morning in the patio, he's already bigger!

Salute to Vienna 2013

a lovely re-creation of the world famous
Salute to Vienna, New Year's concert
here in San Diego, on January 1st of 2013
at the Copley Symphony Hall
with the Strauss Symphony of America
with Andreas Mitisek, conductor
Anita Lukacs, soprano; Zsolts Vadasz, tenor
and the dancers from the Kiev-Aniko Ballet of Ukraine

it was a great way to start the year
with live music, fun Operettas, Polkas, and Waltzes
and with my mom's company...

also plenty of costumes at the entrance!
