Los Angeles Arboretum
I had one of those magical days that sort of happened by accident. I went to the Arboretum to meet Tim Phillips, the acting CEO to chat about the Los Angeles Garden Show next year and met someone who I was introduced to online who is the artist in residence. Leigh Adams is a breath of fresh air. She took me to a few of her hide outs and special installations that are a delight. The snake path that winds its way through the Australian Garden is lovely as is the garden itself. The weather was divine and after lunch I stayed 2 more hours looking at the herb garden, rose garden and the horse stables which were amazing.
Visit the Arboretum. Its a wonderful place and easy to get to. Take the 210 past Pasadena and a right exit off Baldwin, and within a 1 /4 mile you are there.
Designer and installer of edible landscapes, orchards and California Native Gardens, sometimes all three in the one garden. Originally from Ireland I now make my home in Los Angeles and have a 9 year old son, two Boxers, six hens, one cat, three goldfish, and one rabbit.
