Waiting for the bloom

Breakfast meeting

Just when I started to think that winter was over and spring weather had arrived, we had a couple more storms move through our area and drop a fair amount of rain. That’s good news for the vernal pools and the creatures that call them home. It also means that the flowers that burst out from around the pools aren’t showing up yet. April should be a good month for shooting Meaowfoam, Tidytips, Downingia, Checkerbloom, and all the other evanescent wildflowers. I captured these photos at Phoenix Park in Fair Oaks.

Don’t blink!

I’m not sure who these feathers belong to
