Today - In Our Native Garden...

Click on photo composite to enlarge - © 2007 jim otterstrom
These pictures were taken this morning* in the native plant garden as spring begins to bloom toward summer.
Top left to bottom right:
Indian Paintbrush (Castilleja applegatei)
Wild Geranium (Geranium richardsonii)
Western Wallflower (Erysimum capitatum)-orange variety
Blue Flax (Linum lewisii)
California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica)
Creeping Oregon Grape (Mahonia (Berberis) aquifolium var. repens)
Western Wallflower (Erysimum capitatum)-yellow variety
Grape Soda Lupine (Lupinus excubitus)
Desert Bluebells (Phacelia campanularia)
*Except for the Wild Geranium picture, top center, which was taken last week, and there are several more in bloom today.
And, speaking of today, I hope you are all enjoying the gift that each day is, and the incredible beauty of the nature all around us.
I'm going back outside now...

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.
