The bluffs at Black Point Beach on The Sea Ranch are awash with wildflowers.

Mary Sue Ittner recently photographed the bluffs at Black Point Beach while on a hiking jaunt with the Thursday Ramblers. This is a  wonderful place to see native wildflowers, and some non-native, very colorful flowers too. The flowers in the foreground are native wildflowers called Goldfields, Lasthenia californica.

Goldfields are blooming in profusion on many coastal bluffs. The Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands are another good spot to see them. They are members of the Sunflower family. Here is a close-up photo Mary Sue took of these flowers.

Thanks to Mary Sue for allowing me to share her photos with you here.
