Honestly, you couldn’t keep me from exploring a new city if you tried. That’s the way it’s always been on my world travels, and that’s the continuing trend here in my new home. My latest find? The Garden of Oz, hidden in the hills in the old Hollywoodland neighborhood development.
Are you in fairytale mode yet? As the story goes, in the ’90s, the woman who owns this house enlisted the help of many artists and friends to create this magical place chock-a-block with tile and glass mosaics. The gate is locked (these photos were taken through the gate)(though you’re not supposed to)(sorry), but the woman sent out keys to the neighborhood children so they could come and go as they pleased.
The Dalai Lama also sent 15 of his monks to bless the garden.
