Going Picture Crazy

May 7, 2011

Echium love

In April we uploaded 259 pictures of our backyard to Flickr. Dang!  The middle (mostly native) section is really filling in. I’m loving the Gilia capitata and Gilia tricolor. They’re both super bloomy right now. We have Gilia capitata ssp. chamissonis, too.  Our Eriogonom ‘The Hub’ is getting ready to pop soon, too! Our Dudleya collection keeps expanding thanks to Matti’s rescues from work.  Here are a couple more of my favorite pics from April.

    As someone stuck in a not-so-sunny spot of the sunny Mission, I covet your yard. And your sun exposure in the not-always-so-sunny Sunset.

    Gilia tricolor! Last year when I visited Henry Coe in early April, these were carpeting the open oak savannahs. Quite a gorgeous scene with the tiny blue stamens and the big blue sky.
