Tomorrow is Beltane and we are now about halfway between the spring equinox and the summer solstice. I was missing the desert, so I took a little walk around the cacti in the California Natives section. The Desert Marigolds were blooming and also the Sacred Datura which I saw a lot of in Joshua Tree last weekend. The California Poppies and some wildflowers are still blooming and now the matilija poppies have started to open. There is a lot of wildlife out and about, and I took a few photos of this squirrel enjoying some breakfast in the sun.
