This Spring I’ll take you on a tour to visit the gardens at some of our cultural landmarks. The museums of los angeles have beautifully landscaped gardens to stroll through each season, so when spring arrives here are a few of my favorites. The Norton Simon in Pasadena, The Getty Center & Villa Los Angeles, The Mildred Mathias Garden At UCLA, and stay tuned for more including my upcoming radio show featuring a hidden treasure in Los Angeles.

Many California treasures are works of art which were created by early impressionist artists, who captured the beauty of small town living along the Pacific Coast.  E. Charlton Fortune was an artist who painted vibrant colorful landscapes in the seaside village of Monterey California, then moved over seas the to a small fishermans village in St. Tropez France to paint.  She left behind a collection of works which can now be viewed in Northern California Museums.
