Its November, and although we still haven’t gotten rain, some of the plants are coming back to life after the summer.
Cotyledon (orbiculata perhaps?) is back in bloom, adding a new item to the local hummingbird menu. It seems early this year.
Mexican Lime (Citrus aurantifolia I think) is blooming, well ahead of the Meyer lemon or grapefruit trees.
Gomphrena just keeps on going – this is such a great plant.
A few of the yarrows have perked back up and even started flowering. These are near some irrigation, but they’d died back so hard during this past summer’s heat, I was surprised to see them come back. Happy surprised.
A few of the salvias are also back — Salvia chiapensis…
Salvia chamaedryoides (I think) is blooming….
… and hummingbird sage, Salvia spathacea, newly purchased and planted from the California Native Plants Society San Diego chapter plant sale a few weeks ago.
And finally, this Rhipsalis (Ramulosa perhaps?) is opening its tiny little white flowers, one or 2 a day.
Here’s hoping that by next month’s bloom day I’ll have some rain (and more blooms!) to report.
