At Descanso Gardens, La Cañada, California

~~Yes, California is in the grip of a drought, and the world of Descanso Gardens is a little tired and wilted.  Still, even on a day like this, Descanso is one of the most beautiful places around Los Angeles–meandering, un-manicured and a little wild, affordable, but most of all restorative.~~

    A respite from the snow and drear of this winter’s Boston. The bird’s of paradise with spiderweb is wonderful for this time of year when we are taunted by spring but held captive still by the bonds of winter. Thank you for the image.
