Long ago in my childhood, as I was growing up in Southern California, I was blessed by parents who both savored beauty and creativity. Together we went to museums, gardens, arboretums, botanical gardens, and  historic places including the old Spanish missions erected by the monks who helped settle California, led by Fra Junipero Serra, about whom I learned in elementary school. 476 more words

This article from Robert Horvat's blog is not only interesting in its own right, but has a personal connection to me. While I was at the Huntington Library in June I met a British researcher who was working on the letters of Elizabeth Montagu, and from her I learned what a fascinating woman she was! The "friend" who alerted Robert to her as a possible blog subject is my husband. I had to share this article about two very fascinating ladies of the 18th and 19th century.
