April Showers Do Bring May Flowers

California wildflowers in May

One little patch of native wildflowers made it to spring

Tired of the mustard and thistle that crowds the slope every spring and becomes a fire hazard every summer, I scattered a full pound of native wildflower seeds last fall.

The birds actually ate most of the wildflower seeds and the mustard did come back, but at least one little patch managed to hang on.

Maybe it’ll spread a little more next year. But if not, at least there’s some color on the slope for the next few weeks.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
