Ranunculus on a Hillside with Native California Plants

Asher Kelman

OPF Owner/Editor-in-Chief
My middle son has devoted himself to creating a natural habitat with native flowers and shrubs to support insects and the birds.

It is flourishing to the extent that there are many insects, birds and two well fed Red Gawks on constant patrol!

Thr hillside is very steep, but he has terraced it with redwood blocks of timber and put in drainage and native trees and bushes to hold the soil.

I am proud of his work but I had zero part in it and can claim no credit!

The cut flowers come from a flower truck that delivers fresh blooms to the neighborhood!

Good for him. It seems like a whole bunch of work, but it is wonderful. I thought the flowers were from his garden, but holy cow, you get fresh flowers from a truck. I want to move! :-D

I flower shop was going broke because of the pandemic. So neighbors came up with this idea of bring flowers to the folk by truck!

These came by flower truck as a gift from my daughter in law as I had admired her arrangements!

Flowers make such a warm joyous gift and only through such exchange to the growers and small stores survive!

So get friends flowers. No social distancing needed at all!
