Sunland Water Gardens02/10/10
Driving to Sunland, CA yesterday would’ve made me chuckle but today it made me beam! 5 N: snow-capped mountains in the distance, clear blue sky and puffy white clouds overhead, sparkling geometry of LA skyline in the rear view mirror… I met Niki at Sunland Water Gardens where tanks of koi and lilies awaited. Unfortunately, the night-blossoming lily our students had chosen is not in season. We chose a couple flowering lilies and a couple umbrella palms that look like fireworks exploding. We were trying to maintain the two most important points of our students’ design: a flowering lily and a plant whose shape recalls a star. Hopefully, they’ll approve!
