A little Tears for Fears on a Friday back down at Old Baldwin trailhead. With the prospect of a whopping inch of rain bearing down on the Ojai Valley, I decided to finally scatter seeds that I’d been collecting. The first tenth of a mile is pretty barren, mostly dead mustard plant, a few nice specimens here and there. I added buckwheat, black sage, white sage, sagebrush, white yarrow, golden yarrow, california aster, california sunflower (encelia) for small/medium shrubs. For some wildflower color I spread California Poppy, Elegant Clarkia, Scarlet Larkspur, Scarlet Bugler and even Centaury.
Unfortunately probably not enough rain to get them started but I’ve run out of time. Thanks a lot La Nina.
