The SoCalSteemit Community has a weekly contest called “Show Us Your California”. ...

... This is my entry to the contest. We had a couple of days of rain in San Diego and nature just popped. The luscious green you see around the steppingstones are tiny borage plants. Borage grows into a beautiful large plant with small blue flowers bees love. They, the flowers, are also delicious in salads. Borage is a popular plant in the Permaculture community. It is considered a nutrient accumulator. The roots go deep into the soil and bring nutrients from far below up into the leaves. When the plant is cut and allowed to decompose - a technique called chop and drop- the nutrients from deep down are now available on the surface for plants with shallow roots to utilize.
