Another lovely horizon, beyond the Sticky Leaf Monkey Flowers and Ceanothus in bloom. Ceanothus is a powerful medicine used by the local Chumash Indians. These days it's known as California Lilac or See-I-know-this. Seen off Tuna Cyn.
Linnea going in for seconds at the Topanga Historical Society's quarterly potluck & presentation meeting. It's the best potluck in town because the local old timers still know how to cook. And if they've given up cooking, at least they know what's good to order at the take out.
