Growing Memories

Editor's Note 

September 2019

THE SHIFT FROM summer to autumn is upon us. Eager students have returned to their classrooms, fall colors are beginning to peek out and the appearance of pumpkin spice everything is on the horizon. It’s time for growing memories. 

Imagine a career in which you get paid to do exactly what you love most. Derrick and Sarah Brinkman are watching their dream come true in the form of dlb design, in which clients tap into their creative inspiration for floor plans, interior design and more. 

It’s so refreshing to escape from everyday life and explore the wilderness that surrounds us. The Sequoia Riverlands Trust protects natural landscapes, habitats and waterways, along with managing seven nature preserves. Their goal? To ensure that this area’s natural spaces remain pristine and healthy for future generations. 

Do you long for a lovely fall garden? If so, it’s time to get to work. Lotus Gardens Outdoor Living Center of Fresno stands ready to help residents transition from their summertime annuals to the flowers that thrive later in the year. And If you’re tired of your too-thirsty grass, we’ve got some great tips for landscaping without lush lawns in the San Joaquin Valley. Water-wise succulents, hardscape features and even drought-tolerant types of grasses can contribute to a beautiful, environmentally friendly yard.

Jets roar overhead, and the organizers of the Lemoore Air Show call this the sound of freedom – this high-energy, high-decibel show is a very big thank-you to the community that supports the Naval Air Station Lemoore all year long. It’s a spectacular showcase, and we hope to see you there!

What memories will you make during this beautiful season of change? Breathe in that crisp, cool air and enjoy!
