With another 0.6 inches of rain from Friday's storm, things are looking very spring-like in the gardens. Spring blooms are lovely, particularly CA poppy, 'Ray Hartman' Ceanothus and the Blue-eyed grass. Come see the garden now for a great show. And don't forget to buy tickets for the Theodore Payne Tour (we're on it!). These pictures are from 3/18/2018.
