It's a pretty world after all!

Who knew Disneyland had a pretty little brook that tumbles down and down? I'm guessing less than 1% of the visitors to the resort even know where this little piece of beauty is. Any guesses??? It's probably not where you think.

I found this pretty pink daisy in a tiny little patch surrounded by a wrought iron fence just around the corner from the Matterhorn on an out of the way path. Gorgeous.

There are quite a few waterfalls in Disneyland, this is one of them...from the back side! Yes, this is the famous waterfall you get to see from both sides while on the Jungle Cruise. (one of my favorite rides ever!)

You want a fiddle head fern? They've got plenty! This giant was near the old entrance to "Country Bear Jamboree", now the "Whinnie the Poop"* ride.

And lastly this absolutely engaging succulent garden is in (of all places) the water gardens that surround the Mermaid Grotto. It makes me want to go home and plant nothing but cacti!

Oh, and that little brook? Um yeah; next time you get of Whinnie the Poop* take time to sneak over to the end of the path as you get off the ride (next to the store). Hang a sharp right as if you are going "back stage". It's been there for years, quietly making it's little corner peaceful and refreshing.

*other folks know him as Whinnie the Pooh, however all the toddlers I know call him by the above name.
