Something to Crow About

Peacock, LA County Arboretum and Botanic Garden, Arcadia (12/10.20) Frank McDonough

When you are the last beautiful entry in a glorious parade, you have something to strut and crow about.

The Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden is that last entry. December is its peak. However, fall color has begun to rain upon the parade, as Past Peak approaches.

Throughout the arboretum, once-gloriously-colored trees are dropping their leaves. There is still beauty to be seen, for sure, but it is nearing its end.

Sarah’s Radiance Chinese pistache and gingko biloba retain the most color. Though, winter bloomers, such as South African red aloe, the happy trills of songbirds and sharp calls of peacocks are accenting the entertainment.
