Was walking the irrigation lines today--sunny and warm. I heard the most spring sound ever--bees all over the manzanita bushes. We've had some rain past few weeks and everything is taking full advantage. Pussywillows will be next.
•15 July 2011, This plant blooms continuously, with intermittent periods of heavier bloom, usually following periods of rainfall, but always blooms heaviest in early Spring, despite moisture levels
•Creosote Bush, Larrea tridentata
•We just received a few Summer rain showers over the past week and now the Creosote Bush is putting on a flush of blooms in our area, the bees are bringing in lots of dark orange Creosote Bush pollen and a fair amount of nectar

arround oct 1st Texas ranger blooming. Seen them blooming up to two weeks earlier around town, but then probably water more often. Mine quit blooming about a 9 days ago and I watered it and in two days it started busting out again.
I moved in here july 28th and my birds of paradise were busting out with flowers, but just in the last week, oct 15th, they've started withering even with water applied.
My Garden siam basil and columnar greek oregano have been flowering good since around Oct 10. I just got them less than two months ago
Tomatoes starting to flower and set flowers again.
It would be nice to have a place to go that would have video from a distance and on up to on identifying wild flowering plants. I'm not familiar with names, nor do I spend alot of time hiking like I used to, but that would be a nice tool to have for this forum
