Descanso Lane

A few of us met at Descanso Gardens today. Some were needing to finish up a color project so they stayed together in the Rose Garden. I wandered around far too long, looking for something to capture my eye, and I found the prettiest light along this path. It leads to the Japanese Garden, and then winds around to other parts of the garden. Such a short amount of time to capture the light.

There are a few tweaks I see I need to make before this is dry. However, I need to get back in the habit of posting regularly.

In the past I gave a link here and here to Descanso and its history. There are some current renovations being done to another area of the gardens. I hear they are going to showcase a native oak that has been hidden behind overgrowth. If it is like everything else that Descanso does, it will be first rate.

I hope you get the chance to visit your local gardens. I think it is a wonderful way to fill your soul and rejuvenate. Plus it is a great way to get landscape ideas for your own home.
