    Parasitic Plant

    Thanks @Tanukimo Spotted more growing in a roadway center divider on California Buckwheat. I am notifying the Conservancy of this occurrence in hope of helping relocate it. I’ve watched some great Youtube vids about this strange plant. Wish I had a more suitable growing space for it myself.

    Killer Monkeys

    Funny, thanks bluemax. Over the weekend I saw these beauties while out hiking, Bush Monkeyflower. Hummingbirds were busy. I noticed the leaves had many fly specks. I guess it’s a bonus left by insects visiting the flowers.

    Killer Monkeys
