This is a lovely Penstemon, just planted during one of the first rains of the season. We had fun planting in the rain, and these flowers are beautiful.
Here is a yellow cosmos:
and one with a damned leafhopper:
A Camillia that was given to us years ago by Dave’s mom, and is still going strong:
Some Ceanothus, or California wild lilac:
I had to include this mushroom, cause it was so impressive, and I think they’re an important part of the garden:
Then I cheated, and walked down the street to the neighborhood school on my block, which has a beautiful garden. Though they’re a little bedraggled, I think this is the first time I’ve seen sunflowers blooming into December!
And last but not least, this spanish sage, which was perhaps the most vigorous flowering plant I saw.
Most of the flowers I posted from last month are still going strong, except for the white as yet unnamed porch flowers. I wish I could name the mushroom as well, that’s not my strong suit.
