Wildflowers...

What joy our hikes have brought us...the rains in January have really made the wildflowers start blooming early..these are some the flowers seen on our hike last week...lupines, brittle brush, wild onions, California poppies, as well as a few I don't recognize.....these sweet little wonders cover the hillsides. Since November we have hiked 215 miles....just can't wait to see what will be blooming this week when it gets up to the mid 80's....will keep you posted.

Oh what a beautiful area for your walks D - I'm envious!
Beautiful californian poppies - I used to grow them in my old bungalow garden - must get some seeds for flowers next Summer. I recognise that blue flower too but can't remember the name..... maddening when that happens (more often now than I like)!!!
Temperatures in the 80's - I thought it was Winter there.. can you explain!!

I love wildflowers. They just grow and grow without a care in the world. And some people only think of them as noxious weeds. You two sure are doing great with your walking. Best wishes, Tammy
