If you happen to live in the Los Angeles area and you have not checked out Descanso Gardens up near Pasadena in La Canada Flintridge, you are really missing out. We went this past weekend for the first time – I cannot believe I have lived in L.A. for almost 13 years and had never been there. Granted, a lot of the flowers are not in bloom yet, but there is a bunch of other stuff to see, like a Japanese Garden, mini-waterfalls, and several Koi-fish ponds. Descanso is 160 acres of nature trails and flower/plant exhibits, and it makes for quite a relaxing day away from city noise and traffic. Here are some pictures we took while we were there:
We had a very nice day wandering around the trails, listening to the birds and checking out all the fish. When we were done we headed into the town of Montrose right down the street and had a great lunch at a local diner. If you live in L.A., you gotta spend some time up there in La Canada Flintridge – it makes for a great escape!
