Pomegranates start out as flowers, and then turn into . . . pomegranates! They are fun to watch grow throughout the season.
A climb to the top of the local botanical garden, under the trees, through the orchard, and to the cactus garden. The tall white blob – not too sharp in this image – is a yucca in full bloom.
The state flower of California . . . there is even a California Poppy Reserve (see some of my other posts).
I see this olive tree year round during some of my walks, but this is the first time I caught it encircled by the poppies.
