The garden here on our cliff has seemed exuberant this spring! However, it may also simply be that I have been more interested in looking at them through my new camera’s lens, with renewed photographer’s eyes… At any rate, that combination has allowed me to find joy I want to share.
While some of these shots date back a month or so, this is representative as a Beltane [or May Day] tour…
Each spring an early yellow Keria must soon vie with a red-red rhododendron, making one of my favorite combinations. Then both are literally overshaded by an umbrella of white wild cherry blossoms… before it becomes a faux snow-storm of petals.
Below that is a wild-ish spot I’m just beginning to develope, right on the edge above our bulkhead, It boasts a Ceanothus, which has a color I especially love with its neighboring bronze fennel & a golden bamboo.
