More surprises to follow. Knowing December calendars fill up fast, reserve your FREE tickets now. Sunday, December 11th, 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. 2428 Foothill Blvd., La Crescenta at the JohnHart Campus. Pets are welcome if they’re on a leash. Here’s the link info for your FREE tickets and details.

Now that we’re in full swing for Fall. It’s time to fall in love with water-saving California plants. With last month’s 20-day no watering ban, this may just be what the yard doctor ordered. If you like purple, try some Mexican Bush sage. If you opt for White sage, you’ll enjoy a beautiful aroma. Red is gorgeous for a Fall Garden, the little John dwarf bottlebrush is perfect, and hummingbirds adore this plant. Look at the entire list of plants, how to plant and maintain them.

One of the most popular holidays in October, of course, is Halloween, and Montrose shopping park is back in full swing and will have its giant trick-or-treat event for the kids. Of course, adults feel free to get dressed up as well. While we’re on the topic of Halloween, make sure you keep the candy and wrappers away from your dog. Find out what the six poisonous candies from Halloween are. Candy corn is on the list. Link to the list.

Pasadena City Council votes to allow churches, synagogues, and mosques to develop affordable housing under a new zoning amendment because most religious institutions in the city are zoned for commercial use allowing no room for residential development.
