Annie, too, is “invisible”.

A springtime romp in the yard.

Chinese ground orchids… See, Snappy? These are about to bloom. The ones in cans behind the magenta ones are somewhat exotic yellow and white varieties and so far only the white has bloomed. Will report on any yellow blooms.

Viola cuteness

‘Apricot Chiffon’ California poppy

tricolor sage


Ceanothus, a very fast grower and very drought tolerant

One of the Annie’s plants I bought at the S.F. Flower & Garden show this year. It’s a glad! I think it’s a drought tolerant native species… well, not a Calif. native, but native to somewhere. Will report back when I find the tag.
