Altadena Heritage members nominate local gardens that are striking and remarkable, either by enhancing the neighborhood with their beauty or their adherence to being water-wise—or, both! Four to eight awards are presented in any given year, depending on “many factors in the universe,” we are told.
The early evening event will be held in the garden of the gambrel-roofed Macpherson home, which was built for his family by David Macpherson, chief engineer and designer of the Macpherson Trestle on the Mt. Lowe Railway.
Victuals, libations, music, and “conviviality” will be plentiful.
Spring Garden Celebration & Golden Poppy Garden Awards
Sunday, June 9th, 4-7 p.m. 1075 Topeka St., Altadena
Cost: members, $10; non-members, $20; memberships may be acquired or renewed at this time
