Current Photos of Mother Nature's Backyard

Pictures are from 9/28/14. September has been hot and dry, as expected.  The plants are fully into the dormant season - except for those given occasional water.   The predominant colors are rusts, tans and grays.  Some of the winter-dormant plants like the Blue elderberry are beginning to lose their leaves.  See the Sept/2014 posting on 'Seasons in a Southern California Garden' to learn more about our seasons.
