Ceanothus - Popular in Our Neighbourhood
One of the interesting things about moving into a new neighbourhood are the unexpected surprises as the seasons move on. We are well into spring and the Ceanothus, a tree or shrub native to North America is in full bloom. I had never seen them before and clearly they were popular when this neighbourhood was established in the 1980s.
Late winter and spring is actually the most colourful time of the year here, with geraniums, daisy's and roses in full bloom. Next up the glorious Jacarandas.
This tree is in our neighbours garden. I was looking at it last weekend. It was crawling with bees feeding up for honey making.
