Description

This broom is bugging me. It should be Genista, but looks off compared to the abundant French broom I have observed. Surprisingly, Scotch broom, Cytisus scoparius, is not common in Monterey county based on Calflora observations. The leaves and stem are hairy, hairs seem appressed, but I need to take a closer look and find a fruit.

A Moss Landing regular, I have only ever seen a single. Anyone ever see more than one in the harbor? Often hangs with surf scoters for company.

This little roadside bit of Bennett Slough is a phalarope park pond. Stops are hazardous, so I took these from a driveway across highway 1. Every drive by seeing these guys fills me with joy!
