Another great morning helping the San Dieguito Park!
This Sunday was a "remove invasive plant day" and the target was the Pride-of-Madeira. It's a nice flower, but as the name says it's from Madeira not California.
This was a tricky one because you have to be really careful when cutting the flowers so the seeds don't fall on the ground. Once the flowers (and seeds) are out of the way, you can then remove the whole plant.

The great team!
