Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden 5/24/10

Alright, so many RAS botanic garden posts that I think I need to start dating them, lol.

A plant from the mint family called wooly blue curls. For obvious reasons. 

Coast live oak.

White sage.

Little bastards have been bugging me since Santa Rosa Plateau. Showy penstemon! Hah, I know you now, bitches.

Monkey flower.

Mountain lilac.

More wooly blue curls. Man, I'm in love with these things.

White sage.

Apricot mallow.

Was way too distracted by the shape of these leaves to take note of what they were.

And that's because I totally wanted to do THIS:

THAT'S RIGHT, I WENT THERE. I know I'm a nerd, shut up ok.

Lotsssss of wildflowers.

Mostly California poppies, purple chinese houses and lupines~

Purple Chinese houses.

Blooming prickly pear cactus. 

Obligatory wildlife pic of the day: fence lizard minus tail.
