Things are either going strong, or gearing up.
Calif. native Ceanothus arboreus 'Ray Hartman'.
Omphalodes. Both little patches are doing well and appear to be spreading. See the bright new green leaves? Yay!
Box of daffodils in the corner.
And now for the gearing up set:
Freesias, here and there.
This plummy-wine color looks promising.
Next to it a yellow Abutilon I planted last summer. I hope it gets big this year.
Cerinthe major. The bees love this plant. As soon as the Ceanothus flowers die down, all the bees come here. By then, the Cerinthe will be 10x more florific.
Also blooming: blueberries, Hardenbergia violacea (still but less so than in recent weeks), Cobaea scandens (per usual).
I have a borrowed view of a neglected camellia over the back fence.
