A hillside haven

Sherman Gallery
The garden at the Sherman Oaks home of Brenda Wehle and John Carroll Lynch is a special retreat for the busy actors. “It’s a real haven,” says Wehle, who is currently appearing on Broadway in “Come Back, Little Sheba” at the Biltmore Theatre. “When I come home in March, I plant to ‘set a while’ in the garden.” Her husband, who is filming “Traveling” in Vancouver with Aaron Eckhart and Jennifer Aniston, describes the garden as a “renewing” place. Visitors entering the garden, pass under grapevines growing around two custom arbors, which form a canopy over a small breakfast patio in the 9-foot-wide side area.
