Descanso Gardens

Darcy, Lori, Carla, Natalie, Brit and Mary Jo @ Descanso Gardens
On Sunday I travelled with my Knitgrllz to the beautiful Descanso Gardens in La Canada/Flintridge to celebrate the b-days of Darcy and Mary Jo. Before our garden tour, we had a great lunch at Joselito's in nearby downtown Montrose. Natalie was our garden tour guide. We saw lilacs, tulips, Japanese maples, daisies and a multitude of other gorgeous flowers and greens. Descanso is a pefect place to roam around on a gorgeous spring day.
We ended up at the Japanese Tea House Pavillion for b-day cookies and presents! Everyone was very creative in their gift-giving. I just love my crafty friends!!!

Ellen,

Is the sweater that Mary Jo is wearing the one that you knit for her? If so, it turned out great! I love the yarn combo.

Hi June!

Yes, that was the sweater I was working on when I saw you last! I finished it in 8 days! Of course, I used thick wool and size 10-1/2 needles, so it knit up quickly! Thanks for the compliments. I'm so glad that it fit Mary Jo.
