Bird Park

By now, we have all heard of a dog park and may have even taken our favorite canine to socialize and play at one near our house.  This week I came upon a "bird park."  I don't think we are to bring the family pet bird to this park, but maybe just wait for the native birds to fly in and enjoy the bird seed and water bath put out for them along with this darling assortment of bird houses.

Bird of Paradise

I am reminded every time I see this plant what a lucky person I am to live in "paradise."

Indian hawthorn (Pink) or Rhaphiolepis indica

Enjoying the bright pink displays as the Indian Hawthorn is in full bloom.  These are two separate bushes growing in the same hedge.  I prefer the brighter pink. 

Bees were buzzing around these flowers doing what bees do.

Rose Buds and Blossoms

Perfect roses.  It's so early in the season the folliage is deep green and the blooms are fantastic.  Love the subtle edges in yellow with a peek at yellow veining in the interior.

A Walk on Historic Los Rios

A spring walk in the evening.  After an unusually warm winter, spring might be further along than normal.  This was a study in orange-red flowers.  Look closely at the last photo.  A small hummingbird was captured sipping nectar.

Water-wise in the Winter

Enjoying water-wise plants like succulents as they show up in more gardens.  With the winter we are experiencing (low rain/high temps), it's easy to see that they are a prudent choice.

Red Onions All Around

Last fall I sprinkled some seeds I harvested from onions which had gone to seed.  I have these wonderful purple onions popping up now that we have had some wonderful rains this winter.  They range in size from "spring" onions to mammoth versions like this.
