Los Altos Redwood Grove


On Sunday I spent a little time moseying around in the Los Altos Redwood Grove Nature Preserve, and here are some of the pics I took.


Redwood sorrel is a common flower found in redwood forests.





An acorn shell on the railing of a bridge over Adobe Creek.





Redwoods were transplanted here from the foggy coastal mountains in the 1920s and require supplemental irrigation to stay healthy.





A water strider floats on Adobe Creek.





The perforations of a metal picnic table form a grid to catch fallen leaves.





A furled periwinkle.





A bee takes a drink from Adobe Creek.





Adobe Creek.





The creek hosts a small population of three-spine stickleback.







California buttercups.







Allium flowers.
