Friends of Sausal Creek Native Plant Sale

On this rainy Bay Area day, we went out to Joaquin Miller Park to shop the Native Plant Sale put on by the Friends of Sausal Creek. We love Joaquin Miller Park and love hitting up the Native Plant Sale when we remember to. We picked up a few plants two years ago from the plant sale, but completely missed it last year. So, even though it was raining, we were pretty determined to go through the natives.

We brought our puppy Jax with (since Joey, our pit, is not a fan of rain) and he played in the rain for a bit with another dog at the sale. He was wrapped up in a towel on the way home in the car and fell asleep by the fireplace when we got home.

The natives we picked up:
