Travelerette on the Wildflower Trail

Myself and He-Man headed north-east to Sierra National Forest looking for Spring Wildflowers. We found a few mountain sides covered in California Poppies, and several other Wildflowers in bloom.

We saw Blue Dicks, Lupin two types Miniature, and a larger purple one Mountain? There were buttercups, and Goldfields, Chinese Houses, a tiny white flower like Baby’s Breath, but not. I need to ID that one, and lots of grass! The recent rains really greened things up nicely.

Travelerette and WildflowersWe got to the Trail-head in the late morning with the sun shining, but the Poppies decided to sleep late on this Saturday morning.

We hiked about 2 miles round trip on this trail, then headed to Yosemite to check out the waterfalls, and do a bit of hiking there. Images to follow.

Another photo from my outing with Rene and Rainey last week-end. I love nature’s bouquets. Here there is Lupine, California Poppies, Common Owl’s Clover, and Fiddle-necks.

The bees were buzzing around here, and the day was warm. The cloud cover really made the colors pop by diffusing the light a bit.  This is my favorite time of year in California when all the hills are green and colorful.
