Flora / Fauna, San Diego
We don't get a lot of rain here in San Diego and are very into the environment so we have adapted to our conditions instead of fighting against it.
You will see a WONDERFUL WIDE variety of different succulents and low water plants. I think they are beautiful and chances are you will see a ton of things you have never seen before. Enjoy.
When you visit Imperial Beach, be sure to walk to the end of the Pier. Look out into the water and wait. Be patient. Within a couple of minutes, you'll start to see seals! The swim alone, and in groups, and are constantly surfacing, and rolling around. They were great fun to watch!
Unfortunately, people also fish from the Pier, and while we were there, a seal got hooked. The fisherman had to cut his line, but the hook remained it the seal. I'm not sure why they allow fishing from the Pier, as it is certainly hazardous to both the seals and the surfers.
Sometimes they have very exotic (for me) trees in their backyards - what is that tree with big fruits?
It's an avocado, REED AVOCADO. They are the biggest and best tasting of any avocado
I’ve ever had.
It seems they love cacti - I am not sure where are more cacti: in San Diego's yards or in Arizona. What do you think?
Hmm... I don't know but in April/May most flowers seem to bloom in San Diego. As I know that some of them bloom from spring till fall (autumn), am I wrong?
I was surprised how many kinds of various plants do grow around San Diegans (is it correct in English ? :-) houses?
Sometimes they grow in flower pots.
It seems that not only people are very sociable in San Diego.
Do this cat on my picture eat with a knife and spoon?
Cats of San Diego? There are a lot of big wild cats in world famous San Diego ZOO but there are many more cats (house cats) in their homes, I suppose.
Hmmm... I have never seen any mice there :-).
