Midsummer at Santa Rosa
Not fewer than a score of totally unrelated species of plants are growing in the small plots of ground covered by this photograph. The tall plants near the center of the picture are hybrid forms of teosinte, the ancestor of the familiar corn plant. In the immediate foreground, clusters of the inevitable spineless cactus.
