In bloom…

The Holy Trinity of La-La Land Flora — The Italian Cypress, The Bird of Paradise and The Jacaranda. Pictured here, The Blossoms of The Jacaranda…JACARANDA…

In the San Fernando Valley and other lower elevations, where the heat and sun are more intense than they are up in the canyons, the blossoms of the jacaranda tend to unleash themselves a week or two before Memorial Day, springing an umbrella of purple majesty through the end of June. For the jacarandas of Upper Nichols Canyon, though, their botanical beauty tends to be delayed until mid-June. And now here we are in front of the Home Office in Studio Los Angeles. Enjoy!

      Each mascot/CEO-in-training has a different skillset. With the dear, departed One-Eyed Pug, it was lap-warming and snoring. This Kevork, the Rocky Mountain Spotted Retriever, is all in with the athletics. If he were a human, he‘d be an underwear model or a UFC professional, certainly. Thank you!
