“Good questions outrank easy answers.” — Paul A. Samuelson Stuck in traffic yesterday afternoon, I finally realized why Paul fled to Germany. And Eric to Spain, Michael to Vancouver, and Catharine to San Juanico. It’s not for the obvious reason of summertime crowds in Laguna. My friends and family all left on the pretext of vacation, but the real reason was to avoid garden chores. From sprinkler repairs to fighting off whitefly, the garden requires your attention.

I am a ’50s child (in more than one way), born and raised in Laguna. I love our country and hold a lot of affection for Uncle Sam. Not only did he persuade me to purchase savings bonds, he was a special influence when I was younger, third only to Santa Claus and my father. Speaking of gifts, summer has dropped in again, with our gardens enjoying at least afternoon sunlight. The wise gardener will keep her/his planting happy with deep watering. With hose in hand, it’s also possible to wash away the whitefly and thrips.

"And through the shady gloom...The sun himself...hid his head..." "And what is so rare as a day in June?" A garden (and most of us) can take only so much May Gray... the darkening of our generally sunny skies. I have little tolerance of this weather pattern, associated with the Catalina eddy, if the marine stratus doesn't give way to at least some hazy, afternoon sunshine. If your roses and dahlias are plagued by powdery mildew, encouraged by the cloudy days, try the remedy below.

"Working in the garden Â… gives me a profound feeling of inner peace." "Good questions outrank easy answers." Stuck in downtown traffic this afternoon, I finally realized why Paul fled to Peru. And Walter to Zion, Catharine to Guadalajara, and Caren to Maui. It's not for the obvious reason of summertime crowds in Laguna. My friends and family all left on the pretext of vacation. But the real reason was to avoid summer garden chores. From sprinkler repairs to fighting off rose slugs, the garden requires your attention.

STEVE KAWARATANI "Born on the Fourth of July" --Bruce Springsteen "Hot time, summer in Laguna." --with apologies to John Sebastian I am a '50s child (in more than one way), born and raised in Laguna. I love our country and hold a lot of affection for Uncle Sam. Not only did he persuade me to purchase savings bonds; he was a special influence when I was younger, third only to Santa Claus and my father. I guess it's only natural that dads and gifts top patriotism when you're 8 years old. Speaking of gifts, summer has dropped in again, with our gardens enjoying at least afternoon sunlight.

THE GARDEN FANATIC "Working in the garden ... gives me a profound feeling of inner peace." -- RUTH STOUT "Good questions outrank easy answers." -- PAUL A. SAMUELSON Stuck in traffic this morning, I finally realized why Horst fled to France. And Walter to Cabo, Vic to Paso Robles, and Suzanne to London. It's not for the obvious reason of summertime crowds in Laguna. My friends all left on the pretext of vacation, but the real reason was to avoid summer garden chores.

"Summer has set in with its usual severity." ? Samuel Taylor Coleridge With each passing year, I wear more proudly that I am a 50s child (in more than one way), born and raised in Laguna. I love our country (if not her current direction) and hold a lot of affection for Uncle Sam. I recall that I once rated him just slightly below Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, but above the Tooth Fairy. In retrospect, I am sure this occurred only because two of them brought me Christmas gifts or foil-wrapped, chocolate eggs.
