Daffodils~San Juan Capistrano~022612~Today's Flowers

These pretty daffodils were blooming today across from the AMTRAK station in San Juan Capistrano as I strolled down the historic old town.  Hubby and I took a week off away from the desert to spend it in Orange County.  Hubby wandered off one direction and I wandered off another.  I was pleased to see some color.  The fog rolled in about 4:00 p.m. and the sun disappeared.  Today's Flowers for February 26, 2012.

Garden update~021912

After this week's rains, my wildflowers have just sprouted and thrived.  I went out this morning to take a look at them and this is what I saw.  Unfortunately, my two male cats like to sleep in the middle of the wildflowers and they've created some nice beds, but have trampled the flowers!

Yellow flower~Mellow Yellow Monday~021312

These pretty yellow flowers are blooming right now all over the desert.  I don't know their name, so I'm going to have to research it.  We are having an early spring here, unlike last year, which was very cold and dreary and rainy.  Mellow Yellow Monday for February 13, 2012.  To visit MYM, please go to:

Hummingbird and flowers

I was so busy photographing these pretty pansies the other day that I barely noticed a hummingbird who was also enjoying them!  I finally saw movement out of the corner of my eye and discovered him flying around.  The desert has some beautiful flower beds right now and I am hoping to get out and see more of them this weekend, when it is going to be nearly 80 degrees down here!  :-)
