L.A. trip not for roses, but what other blooms to see now?
Fellow old-rosers, I couldn't resist the low fare I got on short notice, so in spite of no roses around the Los Angeles area right now, I'll be flying in on Feb. 7 for a week of wearing T-shirts for a change. Yes, midwinter restlessness has got me and I had to get away. I can't do any gardening this month, anyway.
So I'd like your advice: what gardens and outdoor walks in mid-February do you recommend in L.A., Pasadena, Burbank, then up north maybe to the south part of the Bay Area? I know Huntington Library has camellias blooming, don't know where else to go and what to see.
