These three shoots were coming up. I'll definitely watch how they develop. This winter/spring rainy season has given us wonderful coastal trail walks this year. Each year is a delight, but this year has been particularly bountiful.

I know I've read about these fern like plants, but I can not recall the name. Lovely leaves with a small white flower which is hard not to over expose in the lighting...

I believe this was a Great Blue Heron enjoying the small lake's finest tasty treats. Right after the photo the bird successfully struck food..... couldn't see what though.

I've always referred to these as indian paint brush.... but, that was from a children's story I read my daughters. See them lots of places along the San Mateo coast.
