Hello everyone. My name is Arcangelo Wessells. I have been a member just over one year but this is my first post. I live in Vallejo,  CA. Just at the East end of the San Francisco bay area. I have a small garden so I have resorted to  small slow growing plants to extend the joy of gardening. I raise plants from seed in pots but I try to get them in the ground as soon as possible. Some bulbs disappear quickly but others are tough and I am much fond of the way they look in the ground. I am trying to make it look as natural as possible. I am interested mainly in Paeonia, Gethyllis, Fritillaria and Calochortus. I will have more photos to share later this year, but many of my plants are still to young to flower. I am also very interested in Castilleja and Orobanche and other parasitic plants.
So this week I have Paeonia mascula ssp russoi fading out. It rained last week and really made the flower more beautiful.

  Paeonia cambessedesii just opened today. A bit harder to photograph. It works best at 7am as I go to work.


Also some Trillium ovatum:

They are my first flowers on seed grown plants from Archibalds. Paeonia californica bloomed one month ago but I would love to try to cross them in the future.
