The Garden Conservancy Pasadena Garden Tour

Today, my friend Mary Gray who owns the garden accessory store Pot-ted in Los Feliz, and I went on a tour of some beautiful and historic Pasadena gardens. The tour was part of the Garden Conservancy Open Days program.

According to their brochure "The Garden Conservancy is the only national nonprofit organization founded to preserve exceptional American gardens for the education and enjoyment of the public."

Six Pasadena homeowners generously opened their private gardens to Garden Conservancy guests this year.

I love to look at local gardens. I always walk away with lots of curb appeal ideas for my Pasadena and Arcadia home staging clients. We saw many gorgeous gardens, but Mary and I both liked the last garden we toured, the Bixby garden, the best. It wasn't a formal garden, like some of the others, but it had the most personality and charm. It reflected the Spanish Revival style of the home. You had a sense that the homeowners used and enjoyed all of the garden all of the time, not just when they were entertaining. You also had a sense that they got in there and got dirt under their fingernails.

Dining area with aviary. The homeowner chose birds with pleasant songs. They must be happy. The love birds had 2 eggs and the canaries had 5 eggs.

The cactus garden was breathtaking. It was planted years ago by a previous owner who was the curator of the cactus gardens at the Huntington Gardens.

If you have an interest in gardens or garden design, I highly recommend you take the opportunity to participate in the next the Garden Conservancy Garden tour.
