Begonia Kaleidoscopes

ABS Convention 1999  September 1-5, 1999

Begonia Kaleidoscopes

We know you call it LaLa Land and a thousand suburbs in search of a city, but if you have ever flown into our home on a sparkling night and descended from the mountains to the Pacific you have some idea of the size and diversity of Los Angeles. West Los Angeles and the South Bay, including Santa Monica, Westwood, Beverly Hills, Culver City, El Segundo, Manhattan/Hermosa/Redondo Beach, Palos Verdes, Playa del Rey and, of course, Westchester diminish the vastness and make life most livable and comfortable. Each section has its own charm and delights.

Why do people love L.A. and stay in L.A.? The weather--the world's greatest. The closer you get to the Pacific the better it gets--rarely unbearably hot and usually 200 cooler than downtown or the Valley. And the climate is ideal for growing begonias and do we grow them!

So please join us in September (arrive on August 31 for the September 1 pre-convention tour to Lotusland) and see why we love L.A. The tours and seminars are almost settled. The menus have been chosen,, and we're working on a perfect weekend for you. The program for the Saturday night banquet is worth the trip alone. 

More details later on all these subjects. We're hoping to get the packets to you early Spring, but you don't have to wait till then to book your flights and rooms. We will be ready.
