The colors of the riverbed


On a bike ride along the Rio San Gabriel this morning we noticed all these colorful plants growing in the currently mostly dry riverbed. It seems like it was just a few weeks ago that it was full of water, and now, it is full of these flowers and grasses (and trees). It looked landscaped in some places, but with a fun "wild" appeal.

It made me wonder where the different plants come from. Are they planted by the same squirrels who plant the walnut and fig trees in my yard? Come to think of it, lots of things I've never planted have come up in my yard over the past few years. Maybe the Downey squirrels are smarter than we think. Kinda makes you wonder.
