UC Botanical Garden

Today we visited the UC Botanical Garden, and Cedric's favorite spot was the dye plants bed in the herb garden. The flowers were still stunning, and the indigo pods were lovely.

We also saw lizards, many robins and towhees, and even a roufus-sided towhee. In the quiet, California garden, we watched a small, gray mouse, no bigger than a quarter, foraging. We also stopped into the tropical house to see Odora, and I was happy that she wasn't stinky! Next to Odora is Titania, setting fruit, and another plant in the leaf stage. It's quite something seeing a flower almost as big as you, and a leaf taller than you are.
