Venice Garden & Home Tour: four stops including Orson Bean and Alley Mills’ charmer

Venice garden tour
By Debra Prinzing

The annual Venice Garden & Home Tour is May 2, and more than 30 properties will be open along the canals, walks and side streets of one of L.A.'s iconic neighborhoods. Bring a camera and a notebook to jot down plant names, or borrow some inspiration with this preview of four very different gardens on the tour. We start at the home of actors Orson Bean and Alley Mills, whose canal district mixes floral bounty with vintage signs used as folk art.
