J and Kel took some time to explore the Laguna Beach area - look at this amazing home under construction - steps from the beach - what a view!

And also literally steps from the beach - the history-making The English Garden - previously owned by floral legend Jack Eschbach. J is speaking with Dr. Jim DelPrince - describing the charming structure and reminiscing about the first flower shop to sell soap and potpourri and the first to sell tickets to their Christmas Open House - to get a handle on the crowds that turned out for it and waited in lines around the block to attend!

And the current proprieters are looking for help - or at least were as of April 2nd.

A nearby nursery displays effectively by color instead of plant variety.


As the sun begins to set, it colors the succulents in this hillside garden.


And to finsh up the trip J and Kelly are joined by Marcella Stein (second from left) and her friend Dennis (far left) for dinner at Catal at Downtown Disney.
