7th Annual Native Plant Home Tour

It could not haver been a more beautiful day to see all the wonderful native plant gardens in the Seaside Neighborhood. The tours started at 2:00 PM and were led by knowledgeable docents who answered questions about the plants seen. It was a treat to walk among the older custom homes to see the gardens , but also to look at the archicecture. Many of the homes were in the Plumosa Heights Subdivision which was developed from 1924 till about 1930. This exclusive subdivision required that the homes be valued at least $ 4,000. Some of what B.C. Beers(Developer) did was way ahead of the times and has left these lots with large setbacks, wide streets and the distictive street lights.
We a blessed to have an active neighborhood group to spearhead such a great project.
