'N' is for Nature Preserve (abc Wednesday)


The plant is a native wild mustard plant. The white smudge on the right is a half moon.

Join Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday Round 4!

I loved living in California. Don't think I ever forgave my parents for moving away so long ago! And this is one of the reasons. Just beautiful!

And the little brown spot is a busy bee preparing a wild mustard honey!!!

How pretty. And, I believe, edible.

Is this place north of Abalone Cove?

I was also wondering if you had ever gotten through that private road (near and on the side of the chapel)?. At one time it went up to a stable. When I was a kid I was hired on as a groom and went to a horse show up that road. I also remember the Kirsinski (?) girls whose father had built them a training area and hired full time trainer (also up that road). They later went on to the 80/84 Olympics. I was green with envy.

There a wasp/bee/something-that-stings on those flowers...
And it looks huge.
The path is lovely but the thing I like more is that puff of smudged moon!
Very creative.

I guess you could have used this last Wed. for "M" if it is a mustard plant. Pardon my dumb question, but is this the plant they get the seeds from to make mustard?
