  Ten Years Ago Descanso Gardens and Los Angeles County signed a historic 20-year agreement that will eventually allow Descanso to have complete control at the local level. For the first 15 years of the new contract the county is making financial payments to support the gardens, gradually reducing the annual funds until, during the final five years, the Descanso Gardens Guild will be responsible for shouldering all costs. Descanso, established by Manchester Boddy as his home and botanical garden, became county property in 1953.

Seemingly, several La Cañada households were prepared to plug in their outdoor Christmas displays by the time the sun went down on Thanksgiving. That may be a slight exaggeration, but seriously, did it seem to you that people were a bit eager to get the holidays underway? Could we at least digest our turkey dinners before scaling the rooftops to string lightbulbs? But we can’t really begrudge the early birds. Lighted houses and yards, especially the more creative ones, are fun to look at as we pass by. Nonetheless, if you’re at all like me, it bugs you at least a little to feel peer pressure to jump into action when you’re not quite ready.

Since last week I’ve heard from a number of people who remember the charming mechanical village displayed during the Christmas season in a Santa Inez Road frontyard in the 1960s and ’70s. Their calls were in response to a request from Julie Thurston in Winter Park, Fla., who grew up here and wanted to know what had become of it. I could recall little more than the fact I had attended La Cañada High with Chuck Lewis, whose father had created the display. I had a delightful e-mail from Phyllis Lewis, whose late husband, Reece, was the man behind the display.
