“Imagination is more important than knowledge…” Spring has set in, despite the remains of a rainy season. Over a strong cup of Catharine’s special brew, I view our garden with anticipation. I have cleared out the accumulation of last year’s overgrowth, in preparation for planting and can imagine where new flowers will flourish. Laguna lies in what the Sunset Western Garden Book calls the fuchsia belt — mild winters and relatively cool summers.

Spring has arrived, and after a season’s growth, it is time that our peppermint tree and Cajeput tree should be laced. I am wondering if my neighbors will do the same, as their trees have substantially obstructed our view toward the ocean and village. We live in what the Sunset Western Garden Book calls the fuchsia belt — mild winters and relatively cool summers. Our often-foggy days, aptly called modified sunlight, provide the requisite atmospheric and soil moisture.

The giant whitefly has returned this summer. It is a winged insect found mainly on the undersides of leaves. The recent warmer temperatures has encouraged the population to swell, sending gardeners to their favorite nursery for relief. Hibiscus was originally the host of choice, but the giant whitefly now attacks a reported 39 genera. Known Laguna hosts include bird of paradise, citrus, fuchsia, morning glory, salvia, schefflera and xylosma. Female whiteflies lay their eggs in a characteristic circular pattern on the undersides of leaves.

"People are never free of trying to be content." -- Murray Bookchin "Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it." -- Russell Baker The middle of June brings graduations, visitors and relatives from out of town and booth construction at the festivals. Traffic is on the rise, flags are waving, and Saint Catherine's (not to be confused with my Catharine) is hoping that divine intervention won't be required for approval of its project.

"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may." The silence stretches, and stretches ? a longing fulfilled. In this "silence" are many sounds ? the laugh of a gull on the water, the soft slap of the waves of the morning-calm sea, chirruping finches, the whir of hummingbird wings. The splash as a cormorant dives below the smooth surface of water while a pelican glides by just inches away. Bright morning light is softened by scattered cloud cover. A panga boat angles away from the shelter of land.
