Spotted in the wild:
- Trees and all plant life show signs in spring of the natural cycle of renewal. We do it, too. We may not be as obvious about it as the plum trees and the pale-blue cyanothus bush or the waxy camelia. Yet we do it nonetheless. (link)
- Deer in the wild feed on herbs, fresh shoots of brush, shrubs such as cyanothus, and especially acorns in the fall. (link)
- The brushy areas are also of several distinct kinds, but these merge into one another more or less, and with the exception of perhaps the sage, cyanothus and salmon berry regions, need not be considered as having peculiar avifauna. (link)
