This is my favorite time of year in Los Angeles. The air smells like a spray of perfume — white star jasmine mixed with orange blossoms. Here are a few snapshots from various locales. (The swans are at the Hotel Bel-Air! The telephone wires are, unfortunately, from my backyard. ) There are camellias blooming with azaleas. And all the fruit trees are flowering.
I’m happy until I get an allergy attack, like now. I have a headache from all this beauty!0
