After several days of much awaited rain, the natives that were dormant through the dry summer and autumn are coming back to life.
I can see that the Birds Eye Gilia Gilia tricolor has reseeded throughout the garden again, and here is an example. I can't wait for them to grow taller and produce their lovely tri-colored blossoms again.
I purchased two "Ella Nelson's Yellow buckwheat Eriogonum nudum seedlings a couple of months ago. I expected to see just green foliage throughout the winter.
But both plants have already shot up 7" tall stems with little buds on them.
They might start to bloom in a month or so.
