A few weeks ago, after the rains came, the hills around Calabasas have turned green again. So that means the hills around Neverland are green again. It is a magnificent sight to see. In the summer, everything turns brown, but in the spring there is so much green. The hillsides are dotted with wildflowers in white, purple, yellow and orange for starters. The California Poppies were in full bloom.
No visit to Neverland is complete without a visit to the magical little nursery in town. As you pull up to the gate of the store, a gentle breeze blows the huge windchimes that hang from the tree out in front. I can imagine one or a few of those chimes at Neverland. If only Michael were still there, it would be a perfect gift. :( It seems I always need something from this little store, a couple of pretty plants, a glass heart, a heart bracelet, and this time 2 Easter Egg stakes. One for me and one for Lola. I placed them at Neverland while I was there and they will go to Forest Lawn with me on Easter.
One weekend was devoted to hanging the Valetine hearts and another I just brought some roses to hang on the fence.
bloom. As I made my way on the road to Neverland it is easy to see why Michael chose this place to be his sanctuary. His heaven on earth. You really are closer to G-d when you are out in nature to see the wonder of Him. Michael being a spiritual person would naturally pick such a place for his home.
Each time I arrive at Neverland, I get a little nervous as to what I might find. There are not many fan gifts there anymore as I think they get cleaned up pretty quickly. I am worried about the day when we are told we can't hang anything on the fences anymore. Until that day, I will continue to travel to Figueroa Mountain Road and hang the tokens of love from all over the world for Michael. It is an honor.
