black raspberries

last week we started our black raspberry harvest...
not that it would be a huge task, it's more like a treasure hunt. we have a few bushes right in front of our house and amos has taken on the task of picking and weighing every time he and elias pick. so we will know by the end of the harvest how much we picked. and of course this is amos' opportunity to do some "statistics"!

lots of california poppies

one kind of milk weed. i do love this flower, it's bright and long lasting. butterlies love it too and we hope for some monarchs in late summer...

there are some more flowers alomost blooming, i guess an up date in a few days. enjoy your own gardens!
