Here is a glimpse of the floral splendour of southern California this spring!
Sorry for the lack of posting yesterday, I should know by now that when I return from vacation that the first day back is always overwhelming (and now the second day, too…).
If you follow the various wildflower blogs, you’ll know that southern California and Arizona are having an exceptional year for wildflower displays (if you want to have someone aggregate the reports for you, I recommend frequent BPotD contributor Sandy Steinman’s Natural History Wanderings). Significant and frequent rainfalls in the region during the past winter have led to colourful displays of (mostly) annuals carpeting the desert floors and some grassy hillsides. My visit was all too brief!
