Sunset on my Favourite Salvia

  Here is the sun setting behind my very favourite salvia, Saliva californica. I have many salvias in my garden but this variety, with its tough drought tolerant ways and masses of sky blue flowers on a very statuesque frame is such a delight. I enjoy its early spring show every year and look forward…

A beautiful Monarch

A beautiful monarch butterfly visited our garden this week. It’s in the middle of winter here but still we have butterflies aplenty come a sunny winter’s day. Here he is enjoying the nectar from a perennial wallflower. I love his furry white spotted body too!
