October to November garden

Back on October 7, my bulbs started greening up. First the Crocus sativus (Saffron Crocus)

By November 22, the C. sativus had grown a bit:
Native bulbs were showing some life too by Nov 22. Don't ask me just now which one this is.

On Oct 7 the unknown exotic was just showing:
I planted this Sedum 'Harvest Moon' just before Thanksgiving and took these pictures on 12/9. It's fragile and I placed the broken bits in other nearby pots where it looks like they will take. I may be overwhelmed with it by next year.

I think these are Datura wrightii (Loco weed, sacred Datura) seedlings.  At least, that 's what I scattered in this container just before Thanksgiving.  The picture was taken on 12/9.  A companion container planted at the same time isn't showing any growth, however, so these may be adventitious sprouts.

I think this is Dichelostemma capitatum (Blue Dicks), a bulb native to western N. America.

Manzanita flowers are beautiful and delicate.  It looks like a ruthless pollinator has gotten into this one from the side.  That happens.

Finally, I found these fun mushrooms the other day and chose them to make a "family" portrait on 12/9.  We'll see how fast they grow ;-)
