I went on a hike today, up in the coastal hills near Los Angeles. I took a trail along a (dry) streambed up through a canyon, which is variously known as George F. Canyon or Georgeff Canyon. No one knows who George (or Georgeff) was – they just found it on an old map when they dedicated the nature preserve.
There was SO. MUCH. POISON OAK. You really do not want to stray much from the path here!
#Clover. One flower out of a field.
And in related news, this confirms that @pixelfed now supports image uploads from @Tusky !
(That’s been the one thing missing from just using the Pixelfed website on my phone: it works great in a browser or as an installed PWA, but uploads can only start in the website. You can’t start with a photo gallery and share images to the site or PWA.)
Some #florespondence from last weekend’s walk at the botanic gardens.
I didn’t write down what the yellow flower is, but iNat suggests it’s Senna didymobotrya, a cassia native to Africa.
The magnolia was a popular nectar spot: every single flower that I could see had multiple bees crawling around in it.
