so rabbit brush is your fall colors of choice. so beautiful. and everytime I come here I stop to admire those mail boxes
I guess I better keep this header up there for a while.
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
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.
Amazing scenery and what a vivid yellow bush! I'd love to see the whole area in bloom with it!
I will post more pictures as they all start to bloom.
We noticed some ragweed in bloom this week and it blooms at the end of summer. Looks a little like a small version of this! Adds some color but....aaahhhchooo! heehee! Hugs!
Is that the same as a Broom Bush??Your Pals,Murphy & Stanley
Hi Guys, how nice to see you here. No, it's not the same.
Wonderful fence shots. The Rabbit Brush provides a nice spot of color behind the fence and those mountains are just beautiful.
It's absolutely beautiful when it's in full bloom!!
Delightful shots! I would almost bet the blooms give off a lot of pollen. Pretty yellow.
how beautiful! oh, those colors of earth!
It's interesting that you also get 'autumn' colours in the dessert. It's a lovely bush.
Lovely, guess the earth might be too dry and hard for burrows and when it is all in flower , must be a great sight.
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.
I love the color it adds to the landscape!
Lovely photos. Beautiful countryside.
THe cool fall weather has arrived at my house!!
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!
Midnight wants to know if there are rabbits hiding in that rabbit bush. He'd like to play with them!! :-)
Beautiful photos, Inger!I would love to see in person the field burst into yellow blooms! Wishing you a lovely weekend.
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.
I bet it looks lovely later on.
I love when you share your change of seasons - and fences!
Thanks for leaving a comment.. ~~ Inger
