The days have closed with a clear horizon over the ocean, and possi- bilities have returned. October is such a splendid month. Your questions for me included: Q. Besides ruining my view, my neighbor’s eucalyptus tree has covered my soil with debris.

Traditional garden design has suggested elements that our first garden might likely include. This is probably due to a vague recollection of featured gardens in Architectural Digest or a movie filmed in England.

The joy that is Music in the Park There are so many wonderful reasons why we live in Laguna Beach. One that tops my list is Music in the Park at Bluebird. We look forward to those eight Sundays every summer where we can picnic and enjoy music with other members of the community. It is an experience that makes Laguna special. We get the opportunity to hear some fabulous bands. We get to socialize with our neighbors and friends. Our kids enjoy the camaraderie of being part of such a wonderful community.
