Grapevine blooms last weekend...up to the color yellow

There's a tiny smidge of orange, too.

Years ago I happened to be driving through the Grapevine when the hills were painted with huge swaths of yellow, orange, blue and purple. It was one of the most amazing things I'd ever seen.

This year I was a little too early for that. However, it was definitely busting out the yellow. Here's some pics taken at 65 mph...

(oh, and at the end, poor shots but of STUNNING purple at the northern foot of the Grapevine--a SEA of purple lupins abloom. Amazing.)

Lavender seas. It's about 4,000 times better in person. Give or take.

Thus ends today's Flash-o-So-Cal blooms. If you are able, I recommend getting out and looking, if it's time where you are. Down there, and up here in the Sierran foothills, it is time.
