|This grows wild, and looks a bit like lamb's ears.|
That's it. That's the theme.
I don't usually take the time to look at the world from the ground level, but it does provide not only a different perspective on things higher, but a closer look at things lower.
So without further ado, here are some views from the ground on the hill.
|These well-worn boots decorate the new rock garden out front.|
Periodically Iris the dog decides they need a good gnaw, and drags them away.
|Don't get excited - it's just a cow bone. Tropical sage (Salvia coccinea) is behind.|
|"Go away go away go away."|
|Blackfoot daisies (Melampodium leucanthum), Manfreda maculosa (I think)|
and fallen cenizo blooms (Leucophyllum frutescens).
|My perfect native groundcover: straggler daisy or horseherb (Calyptocarpus vialis).|
|Fruits of fall labors - dead Ashe junipers cut into stove-sized pieces.|
