February Wildflower

Shooting Star, originally uploaded by ParsecTraveller.

It may only be February, but here on the Central Coast it appears that February means spring. While hiking on Bishop's Peak yesterday, I noticed some brightly-colored shooting stars already in bloom. With the on-and-off rain, everything was covered in water, which made for some great macro opportunities.

Also, the live oak forests at the base of the peak, normally dry and dusty, were lush and green today with dripping water and fresh plant growth. Winter in California is wonderful.
