Wildflowers

29 05 2017

This year I could finally do a wildflower hike – a hike with abundant views of varied wildflowers that adorned the spring landscape. I managed to visit Henry Coe State Park during the brief span of a few weeks before the flowers could vanish in the rising summer heat. Wilson’s Peak trail in the park had been a good choice for the purpose. We saw a wide variety of flowers spread across the hills. We did the 9 mile loop. It had been an unusually hot spring day, which made the hike a little challenging.

I have had my fill of California poppies, buttercups, dandelions in bright happy yellow.

The ample blues and violets, beautiful and buoyant,  complemented well the yellows, making the scenery a perfect sight. Lupines, fiesta flowers, Chinese houses galore.

Blow wives, milk weed, baby blue eyes and many more.

California wild roses, geraniums, tree clovers, and other pinks and reds added just the dash of prettiness needed.

As you might have guessed by now, my general knowledge of flowers is cursory at best. Notwithstanding the lack of the semantic knowledge, I love the cheerfulness and colorful brightness of these wildflowers – free and happy. 🙂
