Silk Oak Time

Silk OakSouthern California is famous for the purple of its Jacaranda trees, which bloom in May and/or June, but what's blooming now are the Silk Oaks. Most do not bloom quite as spectacularly as this one (click on it to biggen the view), but even with fewer blooms they are eyecatching. Do not even think of planting one in your lawn though; at best they are messy buggers, and if overwatered by even one drop they will shed leaves all year as if they had some ghastly autoimmune disease.

Meanwhile, after a just couple days of sun, we are being told another system will keep us wet for four days or so.
