On Easter He-Man and I met our friend Gordon of https://undiscoverdimagesamongstus2.wordpress.com/
down in SoCal at the Carrizo Plain National Monument to photograph
the wildflowers in bloom…or Super-bloom 2023.
The Carrizo Plain has a lot of yellow flowers. Today we’ll focus on the Orange Fiddlenecks with an honorable mention of a few other yellow wildflowers.
Orange Fiddlenecks, Hillside Daisies, and Goldfields cover the distant mountains and the plain, and in the above image you can see front right a few Tidy Tips too.
It was so beautiful and not too crowded being a holiday.
Next time I’ll share other views, and flowers that I saw while here.

This looks like a great place to capture some nice images, as you have done here. I would love to see an area this big in super bloom.
Thank you, John! I hope you get to see a Superbloom!
What an amazing view to see!
It is pretty cool. Thank you, Donna!
Oh so delightful to see the vast array of wildflowers at Carrizo, Deborah. I was in the area in early March and could not get there due to flooded, closed roads…so disappointed. So I’m glad to see it here and look forward to your future photos. Great close-ups of the fiddlenecks…and so many!
I am glad you enjoyed my images, Jet. I had never seen so many Fiddlenecks before. It was pretty neat seeing so many of them.
What a view! Thanks for these, Deborah. Yellow is such a happy color. Hugs.
Thank you so much , Teagan! I agree yellow is a happy color.
I hope your weekend is a good one! 🤗
These are beautiful photos, Deborah. The photo of the Orange Fiddleneck is amazing.
Thank you so much, Dan! I’ m glad you liked that macro image.
Orange Fiddleneck! That close-up photo is amazing. Pretty, pretty
Thank you so much, Ally! Aren’t they sweet? They’re one of my favorite wildflowers. I’m glad you liked that image. 😃
So beautiful! I love how you posted a wide field and a close-up of the same flower.
Thank you so much, Jennie! The Fiddleneck is kind of hard to see how pretty it is since it’s so small so I thought a little study would show it off a bit. I’m glad you like the images! 😃
It worked beautifully. 🙂
Truly lovely, and I was able to look up a plant I am not familiar with. Thank you!
Thank you, Judy! Was it the Fiddleneck you weren’t familiar with?
Carpeting huge fields like this they’re amazing.
Yes, I’ve never seen that plant.
Beautiful capture of the flowers in the middle photo, Deborah! When I bought my first 10 rose bushes, didn’t realize I picked all of them in differents shades of pink. Subsequently, when I bought noew flowers, I bought more yellow!
Thank you so much, Miriam! Yellow is such a lovely cheerful color in the garden isn’t it.
You sound like you have a green thumb! I wish I were better at it. My Grandmother grew roses, but I’ve not had any luck with them.
Although the carpet roses that were in the yard when we bought this house are doing well. Yeah! 😃
Wow, how beautiful are those flowers Deborah ! They remind me of the wildflowers we see of the Paper Daisies over in Western Australia. which bloom after the rains. A field of Gold, a glorious splendor but for a short time, to behold and give thanks. Thank you for sharing these beautiful vistas.
Thank you so much, Ashley! It was a wonder to behold that giant carpet of Fiddlenecks!
Have a lovely week-end!
Great views, Deborah! Those swaths of color are always awe-inspiring.
Thank you so much, Steve! The colors of Spring are awesome.
Love your photos, Deborah.
Thank you, John!
Beautiful images Deborah! I love the colours and the compositions.
Thank you so much, Peter!
Wonderful photos, Deborah! I can’t wait to see the fields in flower here too 😊
Thank you so much, Belinda! I hope your flower fields bloom soon! 🌺😃
Simply beautiful, Deborah.
Thank you so much, Cheryl!😍
What a gorgeous and colorful view. I love natural beauty like that. Thanks for the smile!
I’m happy you enjoyed the post! Thank you for the visit. 😃
Stunning, what a treat!
It was a treat to see. Thank you so much, Brian!
Your middle picture shows why it’s called fiddleneck.
South Texas has a town called Carrizo Springs.
I’ve always liked their name, but the flowers are lovely.
I’ve looked up Carrizo…an explorer I wondered? No. It’s Spanish for the grass reed that grows there. You must grow the same grass reed in Carrizo Springs. ?
Thank you for the comment, Steve!
When Europeans (in this case Spaniards) came to the Americas and saw new kinds of plants, they gave some of them the names of similar European plants. That sometimes resulted in confusion, as when English-speaking settlers in central Texas called the junipers here cedars. Whether the carrizo that Spanish speakers saw in California is the same carrizo Spanish speakers saw in Texas, I don’t know.
Indeed, it does! To me, the fantastic photos reminded of Georgia O’Keeffe’s “If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for a moment.” Thank you for sharing such wondrous worlds with us!
Thank you for stopping by to visit and look! I’m so glad you like the images. I love that quote!😃
