Descanso Gardens in Early January, Part 1

(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 weather couldn’t have been better, with visitors at a minimum. The plants looked tired and dusty but the camellias showed off their beauty regardless. I think they’re truly […]

Enjoy your weekend! […]

Descanso’s Camellias

I visited Descanso Gardens yesterday, famous for the extensive collection of camellias. It’s a beautiful place in La Canada Flintridge, a town near where I grew up, and about 50 miles from my current home in Orange. Descanso Gardens had once been the estate of Elias Manchester Boddy and family; the history can be found at this […]

Rise of the Jack O’Lantern

Yesterday, after a long day at work, Kat and I jumped in my little truck and zipped onto the freeway… where we patiently sat in traffic for well over an hour until finally stopping for dinner. We then continued on to our destination in La Canada Flintridge, Descanso Gardens. A few weeks back, I’d purchased tickets for the […]

Mum’s the Word

The 81st annual Chrysanthemum Show was in progress when I visited Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge yesterday. Were you aware of such variety of the flower with the really long name, commonly sold in the fresh flowers section at the grocery store? I wasn’t. They’re really spectacular. It must be difficult being a judge, […]

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
