Place: Hiking at Aliso and woods canyon wilderness park...........

Some pictures from a hike to Aliso and woods canyon in Aliso Viejo........

It was summer...wild oats had painted the meadows golden...and in the breeze, the field was creating resonating melody........interspersed were the perpetual green scrub oaks...  

It was pleasant navigating along the mustard bloom-fringed trails....

Soon landscape changed....it was rocks...surrounded by chaparral vegetation......

and caves......of many shapes and sizes........


Spotted fauna included......
bee......

caterpillar............

A pair of fence lizards......

ground squirrel transferring its baby.........

land snails........

And flora........
old sycamores............

sticky monkey...........

wild roses........

yerba mansa or lizard tail....

poison oak.........

thistle..........

Plant: Pretty wisteria............

Wisteria is one of my favorite flowers........the opulent clusters of blooms they produce!!

Inflorescence and the beans.........



The pergola in Fullerton arboretum draped in the liana....

Without the vines..........

Another wisteria covered pergola seen at San Diego safari.........the drooping beans..

In Orange county, in our current city Irvine....every few block has a park..
Each park has a pergola..
Each covered in wisteria...
The woody vine..

Though its not the season , some vines are blooming...

Its in my neighborhood........in summer.......
