I have to confess, when someone mentioned Wildflowers to me, my first thought was a Dandelion by the side of the Freeway. Little did I realize, "The Hills Are Alive" with wildflowers. The past couple of weeks every field, road side, and spare piece of land not paved or covered with a manicured lawn, has come alive with all the colors of the rainbow and every shade in between. Suffice it to say, Timothy Leary and Cheech and Chong would have loved this area. I certainly do and have no need of additional stimulation. Nature is more than enough. It really is phenomenally beautiful. I think of this as the warm-up to the main act (Autumn) which should start in about 5-6 weeks. Stay tuned.
