Before we take in what's looking up, let's start by looking down.

|The color provided by flowers is more readily visible from this direction|
|Our winter rains gave everything a boost, from the Agave attenuata at the bottom of the stairs to the prostrate rosemary growing in the upper section to the fig tree and artichoke in between|
There's a LOT of floral color and even fruit and vegetables, as the following collage shows.
Even the area formerly occupied by a massive Yucca elephantipes is looking pretty good, although I think I may have over-planted there.
But the thing I was most happy about and the focus of this week's Wednesday Vignette, is this:
|Romneya coulteri aka Matilija poppy and California tree poppy, planted last spring, is blooming for the first time|
