An Endless Spring of Wildflowers

...or so it seems! We've been blessed with a wonderful and long lasting wildflower bloom this year, as you can tell from this post and this post and this post.

Before the spring comes to a complete end, I thought I'd publish at least one more post featuring wildflowers from the foothills surrounding the Sacramento Valley.

Black Butte Lake is a reliable place to go for larkspurs, lupines and triteleia, and this year was no exception.

A surprise for me this year, was Clark Valley Road, west of Willows. There were wildflowers of all varieties, easily accessible all along the road. Next year, I'm going back there without a doubt.
