Woollyleaf Ceanothus or Ceanothus tomentosus is the prettiest sight here in Southern California in the chaparral shrublands in spring. Its blue color is so vivid, the inflorescence so delicate, and the smell so good!
Unfortunately, their bloom does not last long – at our elevations, these photos are all that’s left of it for the most areas, by now… 🙂
