In My Neighborhood

Paintbrush Buckwheat Lupine
Paintbrush, buckwheat, lupine, yarrow (not in bloom), and (I think) monkey flower above Sutro Baths. This is one of a number of areas in the Presidio and GGNRA where the Park Service is trying to re-establish native plants--quite successfully, it seems. It's a striking contrast with the other side of the path, where it's all nasturtium, ice plant, radish, tree mallow, and such--all introduced species.
