Description

This ceanothus was observed within the Native Plant Garden of the Sonoma Humane Society. Some of the individuals were originally occurring, and further natives have been planted. In any case the wild garden is effectively naturalized at this point.

Description

This large tree was seen in a vacant lot next to this medical office complex. The tree height was about thirty five meters. The tree was probably planted many decades ago, probably as a gateway to a now destroyed residence at this site. The distinctive dry fruits found on the ground are about forty cm long.

Description

Although i observed this tick today crawling on me, i may have acquired his company any time in the last 24 hours in my wanderings. Hence a large radius of occurrence drawn. The body length of this critter is about 1.5 mm; fortunately i found him before he started to burrow in me.
