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”?
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!
