Too hot. 100 deg F hot. This insane heatwave is supposed to end tomorrow, and be more like San Francisco again. Meanwhile...
Rosa 'Wild Blue Yonder' opened half way, then stopped. I wonder why.
Carpenteria californica is less reticent. She has a lot to say this year, more than ever before.
More every day.
Asphodeline lutea is a newcomer, not particularly well-sited, but sited well enough for now.
As nice as those things are, my heart belongs to the micro-meadow where poppies and coast melic grass intermingle with the newly budding leaves of pajaro manzanita.
Various other parts of the garden do what they want, but as long as the manzanita grows, the poppies open, and the grassy wands wave, this little gardener is happy.
It's spring! Welcome to the garden!
