March features two weekends of a Cherry Blossom Festival at the Descanso Gardens in La Canada. March 4-5 and March 11-12 will be filled with live music, Japanese cuisine and origami folding lessons. Timed entry tickets are required, but if you purchase a membership, you will enjoy priority entry.
We like to visit The Descanso Gardens in early spring when it’s not too hot and when everything is in bloom. The recent rain may have wreaked havoc on some of the flowers but there’s no denying that this gem of a small property is special and wandering in the vast trees of flowers is fun for young and old.
