Current Photos of Mother Nature's Backyard

 
 Definitely summer in the garden yesterday.  All the buckwheats in full bloom - mounds of pink and white. Many butterflies, other native pollinators and dragonflies - come see them this Sat. (7/9 - 9:00 to noon) or Sun. (7/10 - 1:00-4:00 p.m.).  These pictures are from 7/6/16.  
 

 

Dune backwheat (Eriogonum parvifolium) greets you at the entrance


Anna apple - just about ripe
Toyon espalier has lots of green fruits

Can you spot the dragonfly?
Lemonadeberry (front left) needs pruning.  Come to the summer pruning class on July 16th and learn how to prune it (hands on experience!)

Mounds of glorious buckwheats in full bloom.

Large, light-flowered buckwheat at right is St. Catherine's Lace (Eriogonum giganteum)

Time to pick and dry some elderberries for tea

We'll also prune some plants in the Garden of Health on the 16th (see calendar for details)
