Hillside walk, 27 April 2013

Things are much as they were in the previous week. Notable this week is that the prickly pear along Lida Street is beginning bloom. And at the crest of the west hillside, common muilla is once again in bloom, — interesting because this looks to be such a dry side and exposed site.

On the damper part of the west hillside, the coffee fern has died.
