Pasadena Cactus Showcase
If you click through the link to the article and watch the video you’ll see that this story is really all about the house, and not about the cactus. But there it is, and it’s the photo that goes with the article, so we’re going to pretend that this showcase is for the cactus and not for the house.
A cactus older than the villa stands at the entrance of the Robbins House, a Spanish-style retreat built in 1927 for a family that traced its roots to colonial times. Only the third owner lives there now. It’s this year’s Pasadena Showcase House of Design for the Arts, bringing in dozens of designers who show off their very best ideas. (KABC Photo)
