Signs of Spring in Cuyamaca Woods

Even though it's not technically spring, it is feeling like it these days. We have finally had some decent rain (around 5 inches in the past several weeks). The warm weather between storms, and the water is bringing the spring growth out.

Lupine with dew. These little lupines grow on a slope just outside the house. They are kindly adding nitrogen to the soil.

Manzanita berries. They will get bigger and redder as the season progresses. These are about a centimeter wide. The manzanitas flowered to a huge degree this season, for some reason.
Ceonothus sp. (wild lilac). This particular bush is very popular with honey bees and native bees at the moment!
