The bright splash of yellow marigolds and blue lobelia is almost blinding. Those aren't antlers coming out of the wall, but rather an Australian moosehorn fern. And over there, baskets of pink, purple and red fuchsias hang above the impatiens. The Sherman Library & Gardens provides a singular refuge from the congested traffic, cranky motorists and glaring asphalt of Pacific Coast Highway just outside its gates. Located on 2.

Speeding down the main drag of Corona del Mar on a fast-paced and bland kind of Orange County day, many people don't notice the small wooden, gold-lettered Sherman Library and Gardens sign on the side of the road. But it's here, behind a gated, vine-covered wall, that those weary of concrete can find a riot of color for the senses. They will also find roots to an Orange County past as colorful as any town they may have left behind.

There's a spot along the Coast Highway where the air is filled with the fragrance of apple mint instead of auto exhaust. Here the eye is caressed by the surprising yellow of marigolds while the ear adjusts to the gentle gushing of fountains. Rolling waves of grass give way to red-arched pathways of brick. And everywhere, delicate sculptures of animals watch over scenes of horticultural serenity as entranced visitors stroll peacefully among the palms.

Garden Jobs This is probably the best month to plant perennials. Plant a variety so that something is always coming into flower. Don't forget those grown for their foliage, such as lamb's ear and Helichrysum 'Limelight.' Spring-blooming perennials include alstroemeria, armeria, bearded iris, brachycome, various campanulas, columbine, coral bells, true geraniums, lion's tail (Leonotis), nicotiana and veronica.
