Ever wonder where they get the gorgeous flowers bordering the paths at Disneyland? Landscape architect John Schoustra grows them for big landscape jobs, but he invites the public to view and/or buy some on Saturdays from April 4 through the end of June. Greenwood’s day lilies, irises, geraniums and other flowers used to be grown in the ground, organized by color. Now they’re grown in pots. “So the gophers and the weeds can’t get them,” says Schoustra, who’s proud to sell the only scented lilacs that will bloom in Southern California.Info: 8000 Balcom Canyon Road, Somis, Calif.; greenwoodgarden.comOtto & Sons Nursery

Figures, Flowers And Fire - South Pasadena Review
She remained there until 2009, then returned to school to earn an MFA in painting from Claremont Graduate University.
“After that, my work shifted into being curated for group shows,” Sobieski said. “I worked with different curators and was in multiple shows, and that’s what I’ve been doing up to this point.”
Sobieski’s paintings depict a variety of subject matter, ranging from figures and animals to elements of nature. Her work uses lush oils on linen canvas to explore the formal elements of painting, with sincere imagery that speaks to the notions of beauty, abundance and loss.
“In 2005 I began a series of flower paintings to change up my practice,” Sobieski said. “Much of my concentration had been tied to trying to grasp the human physical form, and I wanted to freely explore more of the formal elements of paint. I played with composition, color and paint surface. I used flowers because they are a forgiving structure to render and are also loaded with content.”
“Debutante,” oil on paper, 2003.
Another subjects Sobieski enjoys portraying is fire, which has played a significant role in her life. When she was 17, her childhood home in Pasadena burned down due to an electrical blaze. Sobieski’s two sons, James, 22, and Ollie, 20, work as emergency medical technicians, and her latest project, commissioned by the L.A. County Department of Arts and Culture, involved designing windows for a new fire station in Santa Clarita.
“It was very serendipitous when they approached me for the project, because I’d had some fire paintings in my MFA show for graduate school,” Sobieski said. “I really enjoyed doing the collaboration, and I felt like I had a lot of kinship with the project. The thing I loved about this project was the purpose and the positive impact it has on the community. I feel like the project picked me.”
For the Santa Clarita fire-station project, Sobieski enlisted fellow ArtCenter graduate Tim Carey and Judson Studios in South Pasadena, who fabricated windows featuring Sobieski’s colorful images that capture the tradition and reflect the life of a firefighter. In the near future, there will be a dedication ceremony that honors the firefighters and unveils the windows to the community. Sobieski also is working on a related coloring book for kids that will be given out at the dedication.
Her May 17 solo show at Plan:d Gallery in Frogtown will combine her two main bodies of work — figurative paintings and florals — with the possibility of some glasswork as well.
“I like painting flowers because they’re so forgiving,” Sobieski pointed out. “It’s not like drawing people, where you can instantly tell if something is off. With petals, you can twist and manipulate the elements without it looking wrong. What’s more important is the vocabulary of the mark, the color and the distances between the objects — that’s what tells the story.”

Here's an easy landscaping guide to the best native plants - Los Angeles Times
Southern California: the Tree of Life Nursery in San Juan Capistrano, Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden in Claremont and the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden in Santa Barbara.The grant provided a facilitator, Patrick Johnston, “who was the soul of patience,” said Lili Singer, director of special projects at Theodore Payne. “Getting everybody to agree on a list of plants was a game-stopper for me, but he helped us step by step through the process. We hoped it would take 18 months, but from the time of our first conference call to the time the finished cards arrived, it took three years.”Ultimately the group decided to create a series of flash cards “about the size and shape of an iPhone 6,” said Mike Evans, founder of the Tree of Life Nursery. “They’re like a deck of cards with a hole punched in the corner, and a ring to hold them together, but you can take them apart and spread them out on a table to see what plants go with other plants. They don’t replace a website or great books on the shelf; they’re just easier to carry around and use for planning.”Singer wrote most of the text, with editing and contributions by Evans. And Carlos Flores, a Theodore Payne volunteer and National Park Service employee, created the design and made all the translations into Spanish.
The organizers “had quite a lively discussion about whether the text should also be in Spanish,” Connolly said. “There was pushback from people who wanted more info about each plant in English, but the landscape industry in Southern California is largely staffed with people who speak Spanish. We wanted to create a way for everyone to be able to talk about these native plants.”This way, she said, the cards provide a bridge for Spanish-speaking gardeners and their English-speaking clients to more easily discuss the kinds of native plants they want to add to the yard.And while the cards are relatively small, they pack a lot of information. You can tell at a glance how tall and wide a particular plant will grow, when it blooms, how quickly it grows, what birds and animals it attracts and how much water and sun it needs to thrive.The cards aren’t a definitive list of Southern California native plants. They don’t include milkweed, for instance. But the decision was to create an entry-level guide that features some of the showiest plants in the native palette. “Milkweed is a very important habitat plant but it’s not much of a looker,” Connolly said. “We were going for the ones with the highest aesthetic appeal.”The cards were ...
