Spring sprung here in San Diego around January 2, but this past week the flowers have really responded to the rain we’ve had for the past two weeks. Some areas got up to 1.8 inches, which basically is a Noah’s Ark type of 40-day flood for San Diego.
All of the following pictures are from this past week. The aloes and bougainvilleas are looking particularly beautiful right now.
I have been exploring Actions in Photoshop and deleting Actions that I don’t like. The brushed aluminum frames are from an Action that I do like, quite a bit!
Coral Tree (Erythrina)
Some sort of fruit tree
Unknown flower at a home inspection
Some sort of bottlebrush
Honeybee visiting unknown flowers
Bougainvillea, popular as fence coverings
Bougainvillea, popular also as ground covers
The flower is the little white doohickey.
The colorful parts are bracts, just like a poinsettia.
Mother of Thousands
This is from my garden.
I first planted one of these in the small plot that
my wise old grandmother gave me in 1966.
She loved this plant.
Lily of the Nile (Agapanthus)
Purple ones are more popular
Succulent planting offered for sale at
Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Dixieline.
This one was at a home inspection.

My favorite picture of this set.
You can see a home on the hillside
similar to the home I was going to be inspecting.
