The lovely native bush anenome (Carpenteria californica, native to, well, Fresno County) continues to bloom. I have two, but only this one is blooming. The other is just a couple feet away; I'm not sure why both aren't blooming. Maybe this one got a bit more sunlight over winter...? It's possible.
New leaves on the pajaro manzanita (Arctostaphylos pajaroensis 'Lester Rountree') add a bronzy cast to the garden this time of year.
I really dig it.
I think the purple honeywort (Cerinthe major 'purpurascens') is starting to dry out a bit. Nothing but rainwater for this plant. I can see some seeds have ripened and dropped, guaranteeing next year's crop. Actually, some of those seeds will germinate in the fall when the rains come; others seed will wait until next spring.
The top-setting onions are photogenic. I harvest them as green onions once in awhile, but mostly I just let them be groovy.
The freesia flowers have dried all dried out. They remain remarkably colorful! I don't have a design plan in place to take advantage of that; it is what it is.
Bright sun seems to be whitening the yellow 'Charlotte' rose. Not loving that, but the sun isn't this bright all year. Also, the rose hasn't opened all the way. Maybe it's yellowier inside.
Here's my grape. I thought I saw flower buds, but now I can't find them. Maybe I was just hallucinating. Sigh.
Gilia tricolor is one of my favorite wildflowers.
Stylomecon heterophylla is pretty good too.
