Ásta Sóllilja is a sweater I just finished, like minutes ago! The first finished object of the season, and I am feeling so smug about it . . .

Up and around the backside of the local botanical garden – new growth everywhere!
With the rare rains we have had, life jumps out in a wonderful abundance. In a local park, I walked in an area I had never before seen, and enjoyed seeing and smelling the beginnings of a California spring. In particular, this vine with its small white flowers caught my eye – tucked under the trees in a spot of sunlight, it just glowed.
The Descanso Garden in the Los Angeles area is the estate of an old newspaper magnate. The grounds are vast and known for the camellias which bloom there each year. Some friends and I took a trip there, to look at the camellias, take pictures, and just enjoy ourselves. It is not an area for dramatic pictures, but rather a place for peace and quiet, and for enjoyment of a lovely garden filled with tall varieties of camellias, old oak trees, and tranquility.
