My favorite outdoor event of the year has arrived; sweet peas are blooming in my backyard. Their miracle is knowing when to pop up and when to lie sleeping. The Earth is a system of cyclical miracles of which we are a part, and the intelligence of our bodies relies on it. Night follows day, and restful sleep replenishes our energy and spirit. We arise to a new beginning and get another chance to take charge of our health. Your body loves morning. Whether you’re heavy-handed on the snooze button or Miss Perky Pants, you’ll look and feel your best after an a.m. grooming routine.

The sun shone brilliantly on Spring Home Tour this year lending its warmth to the overwhelming success of the day! When all is said and done, we saw more than 1,250 patrons touring our five beautiful residences, and we served more than 500 guests at our Garden Luncheon. Combined with more and new vendors, amazing opportunity drawing baskets, wonderful flower donations and incredible generosity in our underwriting campaign, our proceeds are nearly double that of just a few short years ago. It is especially exciting to make this report during a time when our schools are in a budget crunch and so desperately in need of additional funding.

After more than $100,000, 30,000 volunteer hours and 10,000 rose petals, the La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Association's 2006 float entry, "The Great Howldini," entertained the crowd that braved heavy rains to line Pasadena's famed Colorado Boulevard Monday morning. This year's float won the Tournament of Roses' Theme Trophy, the award given to the float that best presents the parade's theme, which this year was "It's Magical." La Cañada's float featured a number of magic tricks, including a dog that pulled a rabbit out of a hat in a puff of smoke.
