JRM Logo LA Story:
Descanso Gardens

In the fall of 2006 I vacationed with my friends Ed Hirst and Alicia Allbaugh at their new home in the LA area. One side trip was to Pasadena's Descanso Gardens. I missed the camelias, but some of the roses were still in bloom, and even in autumn the gardens make for a lovely, tranquil stroll.

Even in November, roses in bloom.

These kids were having the time of their life in a little hedge maze!



The koi pond, with waterfall...

...and, of course, koi.


Hidden water features abound...


...deep in the camelia forest.


My favorite, a tranquil lily pond, with more koi.

For the geek in me, a sundial.
