(12 photos) I visited Descanso Gardens today, a beautiful spot near my home town of La Crescenta, about a dozen miles north of downtown Los Angeles.

The newspapers have reported here lately about the carpets of wild flowers in the desert due to our rains this year. Saturday, driving out toward the desert with my family for wine tasting in Temecula, we were stuck in traffic and dragging along for miles.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
