A light rain fell yesterday and today! California's second spring.
The bamboo shoots grow so fast. I wish I could remember which species we bought. I know the genus name for one was Bambusa, but I'm not sure if that's the tall one or the short one. Oh, well.
A few more Cosmos getting in under the wire.
Morning glory seeds coming up everywhere. Yikes!
Carrots and radishes too. I'd really like it if the carrots self-sowed in the garden.
One tomato plant is still producing.
The runner beans not so much.
It's a small plant now--there it is under the yarrow.
Epilobium canum. Cuttings from my guru's garden.
No more flowers on the snowberry...
But big berries.
New leaves budding out on Arctostaphylos pajaroensis 'Lester Rountree'.
Behind/underneath, Eriogonum grande var. rubescens. New plants. I'm hoping for bigger, pinker, fluffier flower heads next year.
Madia elegans not even close to slowing down. You can see it back there.
Something's eating the Fuchsia. No biggee.
I really love this mimulus.
I think we still have a few weeks of hot coming up, so too early to plant most of the bulbs. But I planted the quamash.
I took a cue from the last issue of Fine Gardening and bought a bulb auger. So much better than digging them in with a trowel.
Look at this freak-o bulb.
It's Fritillaria biflora. Most native bulbs don't want any summer water, so I'll wait a few more weeks to plant the rest. This batch came from Telos. I bought one Fritillaria, they sent me two. I bought three Camassia, they sent me four. Nice people!
I potted up some cineraria volunteers I found in the garden. Maybe I'll plant these in S's garden.
And I dug up my little clump of Sisyrinchium californicum and divided it.
I guess that little white spot on the right is scale.
