This specimen was seen within the cemetery grounds. It is a mature tree attaining a height of about thirty meters. It is somewhat south of its native range, and thus i suspect was planted as a special specimen tree within the cemetery.
A considerable amount of this oxalis was seen in various parts of the cemetery.
Seen growing among the tombstones of the cemetery. Note that the leaf margin does not exhibit the more exaggerated cut of the more common T. officianale.
This small, iridescent green / black / purple beetle was sitting on an arroyo willow leaf.
This bush stands about 6 feet tall and has red stems.
My first thought was that it was a teasel flower that was dead from last season. I have never seen an Echinacea flower's dead head but I am actually thinking this looks more something like that then a teasel
I am actually not sure what this is, I put ribes because the plant was growing in a way that currants do
