Beautiful native wildflowers, as photographed by Peter Baye.

Peter Baye found some lovely wildflowers in the Annapolis area. The first is Bristly Jewelflower, Streptanthus glandulosus. It's a member of the mustard family

Next is the lovely Bird's-Eye Gilia, Gilia tricolor.

Bird's-Eye Gilias are members of the Phlox family. Both of these flowers are California natives. They should never be picked - just enjoy their loveliness in the wild.

Thanks to Peter for allowing me to share his photos with you here.
