On the way down to Pismo Beach for our Anniversary week-end we took a side trip to Carrizo Plain National Monument where I had heard there was Spring Super Bloom happening. To give you a little sense of where the Carrizo Plain is located in California I’ve copied Wikipedia’s description for you. “The Carrizo Plain is a large enclosed grassland plain, approximately 50 miles long, and up to 15 miles across, in southeastern San Luis Obispo County California, about 100 miles northwest of Los Angeles.”

You could see from miles away great swatches of yellow and orange on the hill sides, and I was so excited to see fields of flowers.

There were Coreopsis, Two-toned Tidy Tips, Goldfields which were mostly spent, Phacelia, and Baby Blue Eyes just to name some that I saw in abundance.

The field above was mostly Leafystem Coreopsis growing I think.  Here’s two more closer looks.

We hung around the Soda Lake area for a few hours, but I could have easily spent the whole day, but we also wanted to get to our final destination and be by the beach for sunset.

I hope you all have a wonderful week-end filled with smiles and laughter!

  1. Lovely. 🙂 I remember passing Pismo Beach during my one time in the USA, because ‘pismo’ means ‘letter’ (as in send or receive one) in Slovenian. Happy anniversary!

    • Thank you MMM! I hope you get back to th States and California one day and have some time to spend in the Pismo area. It’s one of our favorite coastal areas.

  2. I like this beautiful golden field, Deborah. Thanks for listing the pretty types of flowers which blend together into a fantastic vision. Thank you also for such a wonderful photograph. Have a special week leading up to the happiest of Easter’s, to you, the He-man and your family. 🙂

    • Thank you so much Robin! He-Man said something about Easter being on Sunday and I was shocked it’s here or nearly here already! I thought I had another week! I have to get on that and get shopping!

      I hope you have a lovely Easter too!

  3. This is gorgeous! I can imagine standing there looking out for miles! Amazing photos

  5. Glorious! I love yellow, but it doesn’t love me, at least to wear. But to look at? Love, love, love. Sunny finally here today, so I’m enjoying yellow, too.


  6. That’s awe-inspiring – so much beauty!

  8. I love it. Yellow is my favorite 🙂
