Visiting a Giant Coreopsis, originally uploaded by I Nancy.

It’s like visiting the land of Dr. Seuss to see these giant coreopsis plants on Santa Cruz Island. Their base stands 3 to 4 feet tall with an additional foot of fronds which look like dill or fennel. This is topped with yellow daisy like flowers which bloom for only a month during spring.

Here the top of a giant coreopsis is bathed in sunlight with denser growth behind. A bee buzzes in for a visit.
