QUESTION: I have been searching everywhere for a California native, Juniperus communis saxatilis. Can I purchase one by mail? --N.P., Tujunga ANSWER: This is a rare bird indeed. An alpine juniper native to the Sierra and the North Coast, it may be found now and again at the few nurseries that specialize in California natives. Las Pilitas Nursery is the one mail-order source and usually has a few for sale.

*** JIM QUEALY & THE NOISY NEIGHBORS "Songs from the Stoop" Mudfram Records The cover photo for Jim Quealy's new album captures the singer-songwriter seated on his front-porch steps, blowing his harmonica. It's a perfect snapshot because Quealy projects the sense that he enjoys making music so much that he could play happily all by his lonesome. Fortunately for fans, though, the Rancho Santa Margarita resident got a little help from his friends--the Noisy Neighbors--on this, his second album.

We awoke to the bleating of sheep. My husband and I and our 23-month-old daughter, Evelyn, startled, got up and, bleary-eyed, made our way outside. This vision greeted us: golden hills, graceful old oak trees and, beneath them, in the paddock across from our bedroom, scores of fuzzy white lambs, eyes blinking in the filtered morning sunshine. As Evelyn stared in astonishment, the little creatures issued a cacophony of bahs and stared at us beseechingly. Michael and I smiled at each other.

FOR many travelers, a scuba vacation is either first on the list or an afterthought. Diving is a safe and exhilarating way to explore the wonders of the deep, but it requires confidence and ability. Under the right supervision, though, virtually anyone can dive. From choosing a certified dive operator to picking your destination, gathering as much information as possible is a good first step to shake pre-dive jitters. So jump in and get wet.

Today's sampling of local releases finds punk/alternative types conspiring on the Independent's Day '95 compilation, while singer-songwriter Jim Quealy emerges as an insightful, boomer generation voice of experience. Ratings range from * (poor) to **** (excellent). Three stars denote a solid recommendation. ***, Jim Quealy, "Far From the Real World", Mudfram Records Most of the new rock music that gets rewarded with publicity and record contracts is the work of players in their 20s.

Every January when the new year's catalogs arrive, I thumb through the big-name glossies and gaze at their color photos of perfect gardens. But then I pick up the smaller, lesser-known catalogs, and I find them more intriguing. Catalogs from Fancy Fronds, Ronniger's Seed Potatoes and Tomato Growers Supply don't boast full-color spreads, but they are chock-full of hard-to-find specialty varieties and little-known facts on how to grow them.

The rocky dirt road was getting bumpier, the ruts and rattles deeper and louder. To our left was a steep ochre hillside dotted with spiny cordon cactuses, to the right a straight plunge into the Gulf of California. Our speed was a racing 20 mph. I didn't think my rented two-door, toy-like Chevy Pop could handle the strain, and I wasn't sure I could either. I squinted into the sun to pick out a spot of green beyond the next crescent curve of beach.

The first surprise came at 5:45 a.m. Saturday, when a rooster announced sunrise a good half-hour before the official break of day. Shrieking peacocks followed. After three hours of what sounded like a cat losing all nine lives in one swoop, I surrendered any hope of sleep and shuffled into the kitchen of our rental home, the TLC -- not short for Tender Loving Care but an acronym for The Log Cabin, though it really wasn't a cabin but a mobile home sheathed in log paneling.
