Gratuitous Garden

Except for the Huntington Library, there aren't many well-kept green spaces in LA. But even Pasadena's crown jewel can't compare to the 250-year-old Real Jardín Botánico in Madrid.

Located next to the Prado Museum, it's filled with trees, roses, daffodils, orchids, tulips and bonsais.

In other words, it's heaven.

Why do I get the feeling the falls in Madrid are colorfully spectacular? I'm bringing all my coats and scarves and hats, even if it means I have to wear them all on the plane.

It can be done, my friends. It can be done.
