Rain is a double edged sword here in Southern California. We need it. We dread it. Not just for the reasons seen on the national news. Houses sliding down hills, cars swept away etc. Rain causes things to grow on the hill. Things that will dry out. Things that will become fuel for the wildfires that sweep across our portion the state.
For now, I will just focus on rains good points. It is nature's bedazzler. Here are some binged up plants, so Southern California!
