A few random pictures from my garden

Madia elegans. My ecology teacher told us seeds of this coastal California native found their way to each of the Hawaiian islands and evolved in to very different plants. She showed us pictures, but I couldn't see the botanical names. I will seek details.

Speaking of seeds, longtime readers (as in, last spring) may recognize this plant with the dissected leaves...

It's Geranium maderense. I took this plant's sire out of my garden before it went substantially to seed. Way before. But apparently, it set enough seed to give me three volunteers!

This Ipomoea 'Split Identity' is my least favorite plant in the garden.

As much as I love summer, I'm itchin' to rip out the last of the tomato plants so I can use this container for winter lettuce and cabbage.

I like your abutilon, very pretty!

Oh yes, it's almost time to rip the tomatoes out here too. On the subject of tomatoes: I have a post today that I'm sure you would not want to miss. ;-)

nice garden, lots of variety. I kind of like the deep red + yellow, unless it has some evil significance I don't know about!

Why NOT red and yellow? Please explain...
