December Flowers in Paradise

1 Comment

There really is a town named Paradise!
In the Sierra Mountain foothills
of Northern California.
We visited friends at their new home in the sunshine.

Manzanita, a native plant, is blooming now.

Pineapple Sage is in my friend’s garden.

I saw a number of Camellias in bloom.
Where I live, further north, it will be a few more months
before I see my plant flower.

We think this is a Coreopsis.
Sure looks like one.
