Swami’s, Part Two

As I said on Tuesday, Swami’s has great views of the Pacific.

This is looking south towards La Jolla.

A flowering agave.

Cacti and the ocean seem kind of incongruous to me.
Those things that look a bit like gnats? Surfers down below in Swami’s Cove, a popular spot.

One of my favorite plants in California is the Sago Palm from the cycad family. We have one in our backyard, but it’s not doing nearly as well as these. Did you know cycads have changed very little since the Jurassic period?

Something else in Swami’s garden: a koi pond.

Doesn’t this guy look like he’s saying “Feed me”?

swamis_gate_web

This is an iPhone version of the gate photo I posted a while back. It’s right at the edge of Swami’s garden.
I know I’ve said it before, but I can’t get over the blue skies in the winter here.

Finally, I was really surprised to see lychees growing here in January. I thought they needed a really hot climate.

Great weekend, everyone!

    Beautiful. That first view is stunning.

  4. You’re just making me envious as I watch the rain run down the window pane, whilst the wind knocks out the internet connection ( like now – I’ll have to wait for it to reconnect before I post this miserable reply). It’s just not fair:-)

    I’ve had a rough week. I could use views like this to cheer me up. thanks.

    Cool! Agave like the syrup? I think litchis grow in the mountains, so it’s cooler up there.

    My kids loved the fish.

    You have some serious talent.
