Mother's day

Here is a mum for you!

Brodiaea californica in bud

Just playing around with a new phone and seeing if the camera is any better. Old phone finally died after 3.5 years of service. The guy at the phone store says it's as old as a T. rex and as common as a buffalo.

Calceloaria and Primula in the greenhouse.

Think the imaging is a bit better, but I need to get an app that let's you play around with the aperture and stuff.

But all that aside, my mom is an amazing person who taught me to be able to see the minutae and to appreciate nature. Most of my plant skills come from her genetic stock. You are the best mom!

82 degrees yesterday.

Early May

Fritillaria purdyi

I love this one, although I say that about a lot of flowers. The season has seemed early, we did have a mild winter and an early spring. So much has come akd gone, many of the bulbs are dying back. Although this and the next Californian tend to be later then most in Amy given year.

Fritillaria biflora

Apologies for the picture quality. It was windy, but I've been so damn busy I wanted to get something out about these.

Another shot of Carl Purdy's namesake.

Penstemon barretiae

The Beardtongues are coming on strong. Gotta get the actual camera out sometime and put away this darn phone for blogging.

Rain off and on buy warming to 68 in between cloudbursts.
