Learn Something New Every Day!

Last year, the Super Bloom was gorgeous, especially in areas such as the Carizzo Plain National Monument and the Anza Borrego Desert State Park.

This year, given the rains were not very extensive at the end of last year, Spring was a bit slow in coming to my area. But some color did pop up along various hills, roads and neighborhoods.

Here is some color from local neighborhoods:

I enjoyed a nice afternoon drive on Highway 138, heading out towards Arvin:

Late in March, I took a lovely drive through the Wind Wolves Preserve. The drive was as calm and peaceful as always, but the wildflowers were not fully evident.  The hills showed only a few splashes of yellow, but the grasses were green and graceful in the breeze.

I waved hello to a park ranger but saw very few other people out and about.  Still, I did have some company on this delightful little afternoon drive.

    lovely. The birds were so cute.

  3. The flowers and the birds, so beautiful. What was that horned bird? Very interesting.

    • I always love a spring day! I think the horned bird is a horned lark–he was really fussing about. The meadowlark sang a bit but never is a position to try to capture a photo.

  5. What a gorgeous collection of photos, Patti! I love them all, from the sweeping landscapes to the tiny bee. Thank you for taking the time to share them!

  6. Beautiful Patti, interestingly the daisies are what most caught my eye!
