We hope to see you tomorrow at our annual
Glen Garden Walk, Sunday, April 17 at 2 pm.
The weather forecast for tomorrow is a high of 72 degrees so it will be pleasant.
Thank you to our generous garden hosts Todd Clark and Jama Laurent, Ron Rosenblatt, Barton Phelps and Karen Simonson, and David May and our Guest Presenter Anne Phillips of www.GoGreenGardeners@aol.com
Meet for refreshments at the Les & Dorothy River Community Center (LDRCC),
10409 Scenario Lane, corner of Beverly Glen Place, behind the former 4 Oaks and wear comfortable walking shoes.
Two gardens require driving, we encourage carpooling and there will be a van available.
You may need to park on Beverly Glen Blvd. and walk to the properties as the lanes cannot accommodate many cars.

Arroyo House ~ Vineyards and Gardens
Framed by ridges and steep, chaparral-covered slopes, bridging a watercourse that merges with nature is Arroyo House, an architectural gem, conceived by UCLA architecture professor, Barton Phelps, and his wife, attorney Karen Simonson with a garden court set in a grove of native oaks. Paths from the house pass by the streambed through a redwood grove then ramp to a grass parterre riveted by vineyard terraces. Rising in steps toward the ridge, three giardini segreti frame secret views down and across the arroyo.
2519 Perdido Lane
David Scott May
Orchards and Hike to Overlook of Stone Canyon Reservoir
At the top of the steep Perdido Lane David will be the guide through his orchards of a great variety of fruit trees. He will give a brief presentation on what does well, and some on care, pruning, harvesting. The first part of the walk is mild and mostly level, covering about one acre of meadows, orchards and cactus. For those interested David will guide the adventurous on a 15-minute walk each way to the top of the ridge overlooking the Stone Canyon Reservoir, wear good walking shoes, sunscreen, a hat and bring your binoculars or a camera, as on a clear day you can see Catalina Island. Children are welcome but need to be able to walk up some steep trails. Park on Beverly Glen Blvd. near Perdido or on lower Perdido.
See you tomorrow!
