The warm, sunny weather we had last week was a prelude to spring. The camellias are in full bloom in my own garden but there is an extravaganza of them at Descanso Gardens. One of these days it would be worth your while to take a meander through the gardens that have put La Cañada Flintridge on the floral map.
I’ve noticed some peach trees that are in bloom, iris and tulips appearing not only in community gardens but in florists’ windows too. My garden’s single rose bush got so excited about the warm sun that it produced three blooms.
The other night I went to the opening of the play “33 Variations,” now at the Ahmanson Theatre at the Music Center. Academy Award-winning actress Jane Fonda was nominated for a Tony Award for the role she plays in this powerful drama. All but one of the cast members who originated their roles on Broadway are in this L.A. production. The play is written and directed by Moises Kaufman.
