I spotted these yellow orange Gazania blooms while walking around town this weekend. Originally from South Africa, these daisy like flowers are drought tolerant, which make them a great choice for ground cover in San Diego. They’re not supposed to bloom until spring, but the weather here has been so dry and warm, these flowers are blooming now, in January. There’s something really wrong with that, but it was great to see these bold colors popping out of the ground. Enjoy!

    • I know, it sounds good but it’s terrible. This is our 5th year of drought. We just don’t get any rain and are under a red flag warning for wildfires, something that’s not supposed to happen during the “rainy” season. I’ve been here for 15 years and the landscape dries up so much every year, it’s getting to look really ugly.

I'd love to hear what you think about my photos. Please leave your comments below.
