Ray, the Ceanothus (as in Ray Hartmann Ceanothus) in the front yard, hit its peak this weekend.
The California Poppies put up a good show, too. Yes, there is indeed a hummingbird moving in on the Anigozanthos in this shot. What can I say, it was a lucky moment.
It’s hard to capture just how bright blue Ray is when framed against a blue sky. I know, I know… its so hard living in Southern California.
The little tree smells amazing, and is vibrating with happy bees. It won’t last, but it sure is wonderful while it does.
