The view in Upper Bidwell Park
It’s a great year for wildflowers — get out and enjoy them while they last. Today I went to Upper Bidwell Park to hike around a bit and see what’s in bloom. There are plenty of—
Bird’s eye gilia (and a little bit of goldfields)
Frying-pans (a kind of California poppy)
Goldfields — endless swaths of them
Tidytips — mostly seen near the parking lot
Something new (to me) — California Man-root (Marah fabacea)
And old Monkeyface Rock watching over it all. Get out and enjoy before the summer hits us!
