In the garden

This year I planted some baby blue eyes (Nemophila menziesii) and tidy tips (Layia platyglossa) in the front yard, both of them common California natives. The results have been most satisfactory. Cultivation is not difficult: (1) throw seeds on ground; (2) add rain. Well, it being a dry year, I cheated and gave the seedlings a spritz from the hose once. These guys are thriving in the worst possible soil: basically gravel fill above the sewer line.
