The first was taken from my bedroom window looking out across the front garden late last week after the rain had stopped. It's a view I've shown before but the focus of this shot is the color echo created by the yellow succulent flower in the hanging basket in the foreground and the bright gold of the shrub in the middle background.
The second photo - or second and third photos as I was unable to pick just one of the five I snapped - shows a Monarch butterfly resting on the bright yellow foliage of Coleonema pulchellum 'Sunset Gold'.
|Western Monarchs generally winter in San Diego or Santa Cruz so it seems I'm not the only one late to the garden party. I hope she (or he) made it to the proper destination.|
