Happy Spring

Though it's been raining all weekend, I did get out earlier in the week to investigate the early-season wildflowers over at Pulgas Ridge Open Space Reserve.  Here are a few for you in more northerly climes to enjoy:

Star lily and red trillium

Bush poppy and bigberry manzanita
Giant lupine and mission bells

Lotus stipularis (I think it is anyway; this one is endemic to Ca)

And of course, the obligatory banana slug.

Yes, I goofed and accidentally posted this one while Chad was still logged in.
