Current Photos of Mother Nature's Backyard

 
 The gardens are rapidly transitioning from spring to summer.  The spring wildflowers are pretty much all gone - but the summer bloomers are coming on strong.   These pictures are from 5/12/16.
 

 
Summer is rapidly approaching in Mother Nature's Backyard

'Dana Point' buckwheat is in full bloom - come see the pollinators!


May is a nice time to sit out in the garden

Just pruned the Toyon espalier; will be filled with blooms soon!


Cliff aster (Malacothrix saxatilis) is attracting a wide range of pollinators

 
Our Plant of the Month, Wooly bluecurls, is lovely right now.
