The wind poppy is one of several new wildflowers I’ve recently added to the slideshow in the post Weekday Wildflowers.
Only about the diameter of a dime, the flower of this uncommon poppy is easy to miss. A closer view reveals its striking combination of form and color.
A few wildflower photos from a recent run to Serrano Valley and La Jolla Valley in Pt. Mugu State Park.
The title photo is Padre’s shooting star (Primula clevelandii, formerly Dodecatheon clevelandii) along the Old Boney Trail. Click an image below for more info and to display the image full-size.
