chamise ~ 06/09/11 ~ Pinnacles

I've said before that I'm not much of a shrub fan and tend to be blind to them. It usually takes someone pointing it out to me before I even notice them. It is thanks to Cindy at Dipper Ranch and her comment on a totally unrelated post about purple owl's clover that I first looked up chamise. Seriously. Now, I see it everywhere I hike - duh, of course, considering it's a dominant chaparral plant. I had to laugh at Las Pilitas Nursery's description of Bambi doing some chamise pruning.
