Rabbit Brush In Bloom ~ Good Fences No. 18




Down by my mailbox, I spotted this large Rabbit Brush bush just beginning to bloom. 


Soon this entire field will burst into yellow blooms, a sure sign that fall is not far behind.

  2. Hi Inger .. it's a greeny yellow hue isn't it ... do rabbits live there ... or is that just a name - perhaps from Indian days. So dry though ... but it's lovely to see your part of the world ... cheers Hilary

    1. Yes, our cottontail rabbits don't burrow, but live among the bushes. And so many birds do too. Faith loves to chase all of it, rabbits, birds, and groundsquirrles. Samson is only interested in finding gophers, which is not an easy task.

  6. Wonderful fence shots. The Rabbit Brush provides a nice spot of color behind the fence and those mountains are just beautiful.

  8. Delightful shots! I would almost bet the blooms give off a lot of pollen. Pretty yellow.

  10. It's interesting that you also get 'autumn' colours in the dessert. It's a lovely bush.

  11. Lovely, guess the earth might be too dry and hard for burrows and when it is all in flower , must be a great sight.

    1. The earth is very soft here, so it must be something this type of rabbit prefers. I'm not an expert, I just know they live in these bushes, also called Rubber Rabbit Brush or Gray Rabbit Brush.

  15. Such a lovely truly California landscape, Inger. So many little creatures live in those open fields and the hills surrounding. I would imagine you enjoy the vistas! When the bushes fully bloom will you share them again? I'd love to see them. (http://www.breathelighter.wordpress.com) I still have trouble leaving comments if I use my wordpress info!

  18. New to me plant so I got curious and Googled it. Seems it can be used as a medicinal tea and as chewing gum. Glad to know it is not just a pretty face.
