We were trying to make a shortcut through the San Fernando Valley, and found ourselves in a dead-end street near where the L.A. River goes through Canoga Park. This is an industrial street, with gravel yards, small factories, warehouses and auto repair shops. But as we drove, I spotted a few small houses nestled among the cinderblock walls.
Like this funny little cottage, in its own little yard, furnished with chairs for seating and planted with a large bird-of-paradise plant, an acanthus and a prickly pear. Like an outdoor room, the yard is separated from the street by a low block wall. There are two trees, one coloring a tawny gold for autumn.
Let's take another look at that block wall.
Are those bunnies? I'd love to know the story behind this wall of bunnies.
