We enjoy giving back to our community! Last week we were able to donate seedlings to Seeds of Hope LA, a local food justice organization.

These seedlings will grow in gardens throughout the OC and Los Angeles, and provide a source of nutrition to those who need it.

Special thanks to Seeds of Hope for the shout-out below! Thank you for all you do to help the people in our shared communities.

Did you know there are two species of Romneya? The most reliable way to tell them apart is by the unopened flower buds. Romneya coulteri (photo 1) has smooth buds, while Romneya trichocalyx (photo 2) has little hairs. The name "trichocalyx" is from trichome, a term for plant hairs, and calyx, the green covering of a closed bud.

Flowers on the pavilion walk! The pathway is made of permeable pavement that lets rainwater through. The mostly native plantings include California poppies (Eschscholzia californica), sundrops (Calylophus hartwegii), Aromas sage (Salvia clevelandii 'Aromas'), coast sunflower (Encelia californica) and flannelbush (Fremontodendron californicum 'El Dorado').

Mojave desert flowers! We're having a dry spring in Fullerton, but the Mojave collection doesn't seem to mind. Perhaps that's because the 5.21 inches of rainfall we received this year is about average for the actual Mojave desert, even though it's quite low for us.

Coming up on November 28 in Los Angeles County... https://www.facebook.com/events/143654619577357
Online session coming up on September 1. Hope you can join us! https://www.facebook.com/events/1042748062786912/
This album popped up today and I thought ID share.
When you announced your closure I offered to help set up a fully electronic version of your Veggie Palooza - are you interested in doing this so the thousands of plants don’t go to waste?
Whereas I love all the close-ups of flowers and plants, do you have any wide-angle landscape photographs that we could use for backgrounds in Zoom meetings?
Any chance we will see a late spring bloom after the rain, and if May allows it?
I have an idea on how to do the sale virtually... I can set up a simple online shopping cart / form where you can take orders and credit cards and then have pickers gather the orders and place the selected items on numbered trays for pickup. People drive up, verify their order number, grab and go. No human to human contact and all payment done electronically only. Let me know if you're interested.
Is Green Scene still on for April 4-5?
Some photos from my weekly trip to the Arboretum. πŸ˜ƒ

Found a free solar charging station for all of nature to use.
I buy a 3 foot live christmas tree because I refuse to cut a tree down. I am looking for somewhere in the North Orange County Area where I can now donate it. Can you advise?
