Second Day of Sunshine!


I love Spring.  This morning, looking out the living room window, I noticed a black heart out in the vineyard.  Buzzard Love.


The Quince burst into bloom.  They smell spicy.  This may be my favorite pink in the whole wide world.


One time I knew this one's name.  I seem to remember that it is California's only native sunflower.


Another no-name.  Who cares?  Aren't you just impressed with how the sky blue rims the petals?  I am.


Oh yes.  Shooting Stars.
Love love love.

Thank-you for sharing your beautiful flowers. And the vulture!

The ones with the blue rim are called Baby Blue Eyes. Yours are very pale some are much darker. Very lovely either way.

Gorgeous -- each one more fantastic than the next!

We were under the cover of gray again. Love your flowers.

Yes, Kym is right, Baby Blue Eyes. And I believe the sunflower-ish one is a Mule's Ear flower. They grow in clumps in open forests and on rocky slopes. Also called "Indian Wheat" because the Indians gathered the seeds and ground them into flour.

Thanks for the parade of wildflowers! x0 N2
