Pearl District is a New American culinary gem in Sherman Oaks

At one time, the large space at 14015 Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks was home to a casual eatery called Café Cordiale. Then, it was taken over by the folks from the nearby Boneyard Bistro, and turned into a more elegant spot called SOCA. Which after a year and a half was replaced by a Mexican concept called Boneyard Cantina. Which you may have missed if you blinked; it didn’t last very long at all. Now, the space is a branch of the very popular Westlake Village New American called Pearl District....

Gardening: Enjoying the flowering rebirth of perennials while they bloom

Daffodils, whose appearance is an undeniable harbinger of spring, bring smiles not only to gardeners but to poets, too. When William Wordsworth lay on his couch and thought of their unforgettable nodding golden trumpets, he wrote that then “my heart with pleasure fills and dances with the daffodils.” The word “daffodil” is derived from asphodel, a related flower of the lily family. Asphodel for the Greeks conjured up a meadow encountered in the afterlife. There is something about the rebirth of ...

Master Gardener: How to keep your houseplants from getting shriveled and brown

Q: I have several houseplants that are shriveled and/or brown at the leaf edges. I take care to water them regularly, and I even have them sitting in a pebble tray so they can get some extra humidity. What could be causing these symptoms? A: Although you are careful to ensure that your plants are properly hydrated, many indoor plants demand more moisture than a pebble tray can provide. Our climate in Southern California is extremely arid, which can be tough on tender tropical plants. Dry leaf ma...

How gardening may be helping people live longer

Gardening saved Mary Lou Heard’s life. In the 1970s, Heard, who would later become known as Orange County’s patron saint of cottage gardens, went through a divorce that was so devastating she was hospitalized. On the grounds of the hospital, there was a small neglected garden. Mary Lou got down on her hands and knees and, for the first time in a long time, she would later write, felt peace. Now more and more studies are supporting what Mary Lou and many others have known in their hearts all alon...
