Low weedy flat in alluvial scrub.
Leaves were hairy and smooth.
The vine was growing on a small fig tree in someone's garden. The vine had bright orange flowers growing mostly on the top than on the bottom. The flowers had 5 orange, round, soft, petals that were all the same size. The back of the flower was white with purple stripes. These colors eventually blemished into the bright orange color we see on the front. The leaves of the vine varied in size depending on how old the part of the vine was. The newer section had smaller, light green, soft leaves. The older parts had rough leaves that were a darker shade of green than the new leaves. The new leaves were about 0.5 inches long and the older leaves were about 2 inches wide and 2 inches long. All the leaves were shaped like hearts. The flowers were 2.25 inches in diameter.
Single gray squirrel first observed below bird feeders feeding on sunflower seeds from bird feeders. Was chattered at by nearby fox squirrel at which time it scampered up the California pepper tree and over into the large Torrey pine on our property. The fox squirrel then moved under the bird feeders and the gray squirrel climbed high in the Torrey pine. It began breaking open pine cones for the seeds and dropping pine cones and branches on the ground. It has since moved on.
