Farewell To Spring Photo




Clarkia, Farewell to spring, One of my favorite flowers. Our lower hillside in Forest Knolls was covered with them. Farther up the hill in the canyon, Chinese houses/pagodas.  

These beauties were blooming on Loma Alta ridge, near Big Rock, Marin. There were also scads of globe gilia, Itherial's spears, and brodiaea nearby, aka blue dicks... If I had included the blue dicks in the photo, added a little rock and roll music, it would've been the Dick Clarkia 5. OK, the Dave Clarkia 5. Ya gotta roll with the punches.

I love "crawling" inside a flower like that with a camera. See that ant?
