My garden doesn't look that great.
Due to a combination of my brown thumb and the drought,
things are either uninspiring or dried up.
I didn't even try to plant flowers or tomatoes this spring.
Instead, I thought I'd take you to a local botanic garden.
It's also very dry, but that's a natural state.
I learned why we have earthquakes in California.
It makes total sense now.
Two kinds of poppies were still in abundance, the California Poppy, our state flower,
and another kind (I don't know the name).
Cattails took advantage of the last vestiges of dampness in a stream bed.
Hearts abounded on the travelled path.
Should I investigate the path less travelled?
I was happy to see a plethora of bees feasting on mustard
and even more on the lavender.
Between the breeze blowing and the bees hopping from flower to flower,
it was hard to get them in focus!
