Wildflowers


Wildflowers (Wildflowers)

Wildflowers have been flowering all around Southern California since early February. Many areas of California have had 2 to 3 times their seasonal rainfall this year. It’s been a huge relief from the extreme drought. Photo taken March 24, 2023.

Delonix, this is the time of the year that we were returning from Mexico and the Grapevine hills (Tejon Pass?) looked exactly like this. Every year. California poppies and some blue lupines in between . It was always a treat to see . Very unique .
I heard that the area (highway) was closed for short period of time due to snow.... I cannot imagine that.

Klahanie,

It’s not very uncommon for the “Grapevines” mountains to have snow and get closed. They’re relatively low at 4,100 ft, but during cold storms it does snow up there…although, usually not too much snow.

The desert will have a super bloom this year. I’m planning a trip out there very soon.

I wish I could join you on your desert trip Delonix. It can be quite spectacular. I witnessed some (long time ago) in Arizona.

It’s been a while since the last super bloom. I think I went out to see it last time. It’s about about a two hour drive from here.

They must look spectacular! 100s of 1,000s of plants all blooming at the same time would be a marvellous sight! 😃 Looking forward to seeing some photos, Andy! 😃
