John Sperry has been enjoying the wildflower show in the Timber Cove area in Sonoma County. The first photo is of Seaside Daisies, Erigeron glaucus. They grow in sunny places right in the sand.
Paintbrush, Castilleja, is another striking wildflower blooming now. It is often called Indian Paintbrush. Indeed, native peoples used this plant for various uses.
Thanks to John for allowing me to share his photos with you here.
