Julie Burleigh has designed highly tailored organic gardens for clients all over Los Angeles, but at home in West Adams, her personal garden reflects a more freewheeling sensibility. Easy-care California natives and hearty gray-blue aloes snipped from a neighbor's yard share space with giant ageratum with ethereal, lavender-colored flowers, and herbs such as African blue basil and winter savory. Bright red geraniums, figs and other familiar plantings are interspersed with less common white sage and the aromatic edible lovage, which tastes like celery and can be harvested for soups and salads.

Spring-like weather hasn't brought smiles at the Venice Community Garden. The locals who tend the garden's 54 plots recently learned that they have until the end of the month to clear out. With real estate prices rising, gardeners at the privately owned site learned more than a year ago that the property would go on the market someday. "But we were thinking in 10 years," said master gardener Kip Wood, one of the people who founded the community garden about four years ago. The number of community gardens in the Los Angeles area has grown to more than 100. The wave of popularity is so strong that leaders of the Los Angeles Community Garden Council have lost track of an exact count.

It started as a typical evening for Ming Qu and Ying Wu, two graduate students from China studying electrical engineering at USC. After a night at the library, Qu drove Wu to the house where she was renting a room less than a mile from campus. He double parked in front of the home early Wednesday morning to continue talking. At around 1 a.m., a gunman approach Qu's BMW and opened fire, killing both students in an attack that shocked USC and rekindled long-held concerns about safety around the university.

Sometimes museums go so far out of their way to provide context for an artist's work that they end up obscuring rather than clarifying it. That's what happened at the Orange County Museum of Art, where "Catherine Opie: In and Around Home" assembles seven series of the gifted artist's photographs. OCMA co-organized the exhibition with the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Conn., where it had its debut in January.

Fourteen white photographs hang on the white walls of the white gallery. Closer inspection reveals a faint, gray horizon line and tiny clusters of brightly colored Monopoly-style houses. These pictures of ice-fishing houses in Minnesota are unlike anything previously photographed by Catherine Opie, an artist who rose to prominence with her regal portraits of gays and lesbians. "Icehouses" is on view through June 15 at Regen Projects in West Hollywood.
