The Week in Bloom


Rhododendron are at their peak

We beat the heat with a day at the beach on Sunday, very much in need of a rest after a grueling final push to complete our murals in Oakland. My limbs were soothed by a long walk in the surf, a quick dip in the chilly brine and a nap in the dunes, where I happened upon these new blooms:


Lupin of the dunes


I don’t recognize either of these- anyone know? Colby?

It felt wonderful to be back on our land after my urban adventures, just in time to catch the Rododendron at their absolute peak. I feel lucky to have such natural beauty at the ready as our projects heat up in the City.
