Spring blooms and secret gardens
Every day I poke around our garden, looking for new blooms.
This is what greets the eye when one of our back gates is opened.
The plants are are mostly native with a few non-natives.
California natives here from left to right are Blue Bush Lupine, Chiapas Salvia, Bush Monkey flower and Heuchera Maxima (the tiny white bells to the far right).
Non-native is the Abutilon striatum (Red vein Indian mallow).
A view of part of our Spring Bloom in the front yard includes California Chiffon Orange poppies, Verbena De La Mina as well as California Coastal poppies.
