I go, I see, I do, I walk, I think, I like…

They're Coming!

Wildflowers, that is.

From Tom Stienstra at SFGate:

Rains set stage for explosion. Brace for the flowery onslaught Half of the Bay Area’s wildflower puzzle is in place. It rained like, well, uh, heck in January, and then again in mid-March. To make the picture complete, nature now needs to provide clear skies, a bright sun and warm… By Tom Stienstra. [SFGate: Tom Stienstra]

Several of the wildflower spots on Stienstra’s list are also on mine, particularly some of those in Santa Clara County, along with Mission Peak. (In addition to the flowers he reports on that hike, there will also be spectacular lupine and California Poppies near the summti.) I’d also like to get to Point Lobos.

Plants are coming up all over, the ground is very moist, the weather is beginning to warm up. It’s clear that the wildflower bloom is coming.

(Stienstra also has an interesting article about the west shore of Lake Tahoe.)
