WILDFLOWER REPORTS - Central California

Welcome to the Nature Alley Wildflower express. Each month I will take you along on my journeys to wildflower fields near my home. Some months I will even go really far afield.

Central California Wildflowers rival any that can be found in the garden. Delicate delights for the eyes and nose, you are invited to experience the wondrous vistas awaiting with our spectacular year-round shows. Although spring is best. All year you can find amazing floral treats. 

If you have photos to share, please feel free to send them along with the date, place and identification of the flower. I will post these if you specifically request with your name and contact information.

If you would like help identifying the flower only, please sign up for the tri-county natural history group and post your photo in the photos folder. With a caution that I am a general naturalist and I can't guarantee that I will know what your flower is, but I will do my best. Subscribe to the Yahoo Discussion Group TriCountyNaturalHistory
