What’s Blooming In Santa Clarita?

While hunting California Blooms in Southern California, our journey led us to Los Angeles where James had two shows.  On our way, we found flowers, big and small, wild and cultivated, blooming in Santa Clarita.  I was particularly pleased to see so many yucca blooming on the eastern facing hillsides.  The dramatic, huge and edible wild flowers are very special to me for many reasons.  Yet they were on a hilltop unaccessible  for anything close range, so my hunt continues.  Meanwhile there were so many wonderful blooms in Santa Clarita, California.  Click on the image to see them larger.  Thanks for looking.

Arizona’s Blooming Too!

While on our California Blooming flower photography tour, we couldn’t pass up a chance to visit Mom.  And how wonderful it was to see Arizona blooming so abundantly!
