This butterfly was enjoying quite a snack moving from flower to flower, then a honey bee decided to join the party too! Blooming coyote mints and sages have been bringing the butterflies out in force! So much fun to see them all fluttering about.

If you have questions about how to grow and maintain beautiful trees in our hot interior landscapes, the talk tonight (6pm) at the Loma Linda Community Center by Master Gardener Anita Matlock should be a good one to go to.

I was able to attend a great native/water saving plant presentation by Master Gardener Janet Hartin last night at the Loma Linda Community Center. It was put on by the IERCD. Thank you IERCD for letting me bring natives plants to show off 😀

Buckwheat, Eriogonum fasciculatum (and its subspecies). It is a must have! Lacy white to pink flowers late spring and summer, then the flower heads turn copper as they set seed for the fall. They are an incredibly adaptable, multipurpose and low maintenance plant. They are also both host and nectar source for a ton of butterflies!🦋 These pictures were from a trail at Oakmont Park in Redlands, CA.

I was driving by Caroline Park in Redlands CA and seriously had to pull off to the side of the road to go take a look at these! The pictures won't do it justice but it was this crazy hot pink and purple burst as you rounded the corner. Apache plume (Fallugia paradoxa) and Cleveland sage (Salvia clevelandii) apparently make a stunning combo😀

Golden Yarrow (Eriophyllum confertiflorum) is blooming happily! Found these near the Yucaipa Regional Park and in Oakmont Park in Redlands. Great for butterflies!

Elderberry! These have been looking spectacular for the last month or so and probably have another month of floral splendor! If that weren't enough the flowers are followed by blue frosted berries that birds love. If you are a foodie, the berries can be made into jam. Sambucus nigra ssp. caerulea is deciduous but for most of the year it is stunning, well worth the little bit of down time 😍

Right now in SoCal... Black Sage and Yellow bush snapdragon.
Black sage has profuse spires stacked with spheres of white flowers and a smell that makes you want to crush a leaf and tape it to your nose. Yellow bush snapdragon is beyond cheerful with its bright yellow explosion of flowers, a little burst of sunshine along the path! These pics were taken along the path that parallels Oak Glen Rd near the regional park in Yucaipa. Go take a look!
