It doesn’t feel like winter since the days are balmy and dry, but the pepperwoods (a.k.a. California Bay Laurel) are blooming just like usual.
Of course, I can’t help but wonder if the phenology is different at all; maybe they are blooming a few days earlier in 2013 than they did a decade ago?
One response to “Bay Bloom Time Again”
The photo you took of the pepperwoods adorns our wall and I do often wonder what a pepperwood looks like in bloom, well in color, actually since the photo is in black and white. I was shocked to hear they are blooming now – in December!
