Sunday Streets #1

 
Sunday Streets on the Embarcadero was awesome! I got to volunteer with the folks from the local Dance Studio. A little later, friends were there to help me fix a flat tire.

Western Scrub-Jays in the Yard

These two western scrub-jays are visiting our yard several times a day this week. Our bare flower bed with a few dahlia shoots gives them a place to gather twigs and roots for their nest.

I am going to learn this song for Pride this year! The vocal part, not the dance steps - aww.

Mule Ears

I hiked at Sweeney Ridge on Monday, and found these beautiful sunflowers. I understand they are Mule Ears, and with their soft, fuzzy, light green leaves, they are either Grey Mule Ears (wyethia helenioides) or Coastal Range Mule Ears (wyethia glabra).

Herbs in the garden
















We've put in a few spring plantings: Oregano, Italian Rosemary, Texas Tarragon, and Slow Bolt Cilantro. Also some Baby Blue Eyes (nemophila menziesii). There's no telling how they'll do in our shady garden, but we wanted to try something new. This bed looks completely different since Michael took out the tree.
