Today's weather report. Los Angeles and Ventura County: Coastal and nearby valley areas are socked in under a pretty solid marine layer stratus cloud cover this morning.
Comfortably overcast today. Took this opportunity to do some garden cleanup after being "incarcerated" inside the house for the past several weeks because of the protracted heat spells that always occur this time of year.
Speaking of watering I have changed my irrigation pattern. Instead of soaking the bases of the plants I have begun to do light overhead sprinkling as advocated by the late Bert Wilson at LasPilitas.com, Myths about California Native Plants . Even though these are not California native plants, they are not wet, moist climate plants either and his advice still applies. Garden is looking much better.
