Middle of the month of October and not much in bloom. Among the natives in my garden, only buckwheat (Eriogonum fasciculatum), coast goldenbush (Isocoma menziesii), California fuchsia (Epilobium), and California bay laurel (Umbellularia californica) are blooming. But it is the quiet of the garden that is so appealing right now, here and even more so at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden.
I visited the botanic garden yesterday hoping to see a show of goldenbush (Ericameria pinifolia and E. linearifolia) but I was a bit early. Still the garden was peaceful and beautiful and so I thought I’d post pictures from there rather than more of my home garden.
So for this month’s Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day, not only is it not my own garden but many of these photos are not of flowers. Enjoy the southern California autumn!
