I'm admittedly anxious — two years ago I planted one of my favorite flowers, the giant Sea Squill. These striking tall flower spikes grow to four or five feet and are common on sea cliffs throughout the Mediterranean.

the annual May Day celebration. It’s a little later this year - the fun will be on Sunday, May 5th at the usual location of Hoffman Picnic Grounds just north of the iconic Red Barn on Geyserville Avenue. Community Shred Day May 18 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm, This is a morning designed to help you safely clear paper clutter that is too important to throw in the trash - but a little daunting to shred all by yourself a few pages at the time. Bring up to 4 boxes of shreddable materials per person to 100 Old Schoolhouse Lane where the North County Properties office is located.

Regular readers of this column know that last month I mentioned our effort to save an injured red-tailed hawk found along 101 near the Independence exit. This month, I am so pleased that we were able to witness its release back into the wild by Brad Marsh of Sonoma County Bird Rescue. He contacted the kind staff at Coppola’s winery, near where the hawk was found, who granted permission for the rescued raptor to be released on their land. The release site was up well behind the winery building complex where the hawk would have a little space to get reoriented to living in the wild. Hopefully, there will no temptation to go back down toward the highway right away.
