For the first time in five years, San Francisco received significant rain during winter.
By no means is California’s drought over, but we have more water in our mountains and watersheds—and in the ground—than we have had in years.
Wildflowers and blooming plants of every sort, all over California, are responding to the wealth, and as you can see, our front bougainvillea is thriving.
We keep opening the door to find neighbors and tourists alike taking pictures. It’s a pretty amazing plant, and I have always loved giant bougainvilleas.
