Monkey Flowers, Again

I love monkey flowers, most likely because the name is so weird.  Orange, yellow, and red are the most common colors.



Pomegranates start out as flowers, and then turn into . . . pomegranates!  They are fun to watch grow throughout the season.

Up the Hill

A climb to the top of the local botanical garden, under the trees, through the orchard, and to the cactus garden.  The tall white blob – not too sharp in this image – is a yucca in full bloom.
