After several trips to the Carrizo Plain to see the Super Bloom I thought the wildflowers would be everywhere. It turns out that the inconsistancy of Spring rains has made the distribution spotty. The Owens Valley was spectacular. Kern River Valley dried up before the flowers ever really started. Late Spring in the chapparal is still looking glorious. More late rain came north of San Luis Obispo so there are still lots of wildflowers in the northern 2/3 of the state. Regardless the season has inspired me to focuse on creating more wildflower gardens where we list many wildflowers appropriate for the seeded garden . . . loads of inspirations for your garden
