2018 Northern California And the Northwest Wildflowers

April 23, 2018 Samuel Reports: Pine Flat Lake east of Fresno.

April 20, 2018 David Reports: Table Mountain near Oroville, CA 4/17/18 Bloom is in its second wave; mostly lupine. Owl's clover, pigmy poppies, and yellow sticky monkey flowers along the creeks.  Counted in excess of twenty species.  Very beautiful and muddy.  Goldfields are withering.

 

April 7, 2018 Sing Reports: I visited Coyote Hills Regional Park on the east shore of San Francisco Bay in Fremont, California on April 1, 2018 and April 3, 2018. There are lots of California poppies, lupines and other wildflowers blooming on Coyote Hills.

 


Mar 26, 2018 ctsnowfighter reports: Here are some photo's I took last evening. Common weeds in the orchards and roadsides. I have found this website to be extremely helpful in identifications. You might like to pass it on? Wildflower Search Following taken 3/24/2018, Colusa, California.

 

Mar 23, 2018 Daniel reports: There is now a good showing of wildflowers at The North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve. Many small poppies and goldfields are still growing. With more rain expected this week peak bloom may still be at least another week or two away. There are not many wildflowers by the parking lot so you must be willing to walk out about half a mile to where the larger mounds of volcanic rocks are. The most popular hike is going to the closest waterfall then turn right across the fields to go to the tallest (Phantom Falls) and back (about 4 miles round trip).

From the entrance you must walk through or around a small muddy area and follow the dirt path that goes straight out and slightly left that follows a stream to the first waterfall. About half way you will see the first good patch of wildflowers on a small hill to the left. There is a good concentration of flowers by the waterfall on both sides of the stream. From here you turn right and may be able to follow the locals across the fields going to Phantom Falls. You will pass a fallen barbwire fence, and then carefully go around the edge/end of another fence. The fields in between these two waterfalls have many good areas of wildflowers. There are areas where you can see somewhat of a dirt path to follow but there are no official trails.

 

 

Feb 16, 2017 Stephen Reports: ​Pigeon Point, San Mateo County coastline.  Similar clover carpets from Moss Beach to Santa Cruz.

Photos tips: Most digital point-and-shoot cameras have a macro function - usually symbolized by the icon of a little flower. When you turn on that function, you allow your camera to get closer to the subject, looking into a flower for example. Or getting up close and personal with a bug. More on desert photography.
