First, there was grass (good native grasses).
We gradually found some blooms.
Close-up of the goldfields which form a yellow carpet when they are happy.
A new serpentine-soil-loving plant for me to remember: california plantain (the fuzzy white and green flowers with the red dots). Not sure what the pink thing is (maybe a red maid); the tiny yellow ones are hill lotus, and the little five-petalled white ones are linanthus.
Nice fairy lantern in the sun.
Spring California hillside.
And, I've definitely not missed the wildflower peak elsewhere, given that Nim and I counted 37 different species on a short hike at Coe the other weekend and the number of brilliant orange poppies I saw as I rode along Skyline this morning. Might just have to go on a hike tomorrow...
