Sara in the poppies on Figueroa Mountain. This area seems to have gotten more rain than areas further south, and had lots of nice wildflowers last weekend.

There aren't many wildflowers out this year due to the dry weather and the frost. However, Goldfields only need 4 inches of rain or so to bloom, and Malibu has had more than that, so the commonly seen patch near Paramout Ranch is blooming - albeit to a lesser extent than most years.

This is what happens if you text while driving... you crash into parked cars.

It's a 'Tricot', a very evolved plant

These are pictures of the San Rafael Wilderness in Santa Barbara County. It is beautiful out there but very dry this year.

I want to apologize again for the horrible formatting of my blog lately. Blogger changed their layout and it is nearly impossible to get the blog to work right at the moment. Currently, the layout looks great on the edit screen but comes out funky when i publish.

My painting of said mountain

Little Pine Mountain near Lake Cachuma

A 'Crested' posion oak stalk. This type of mutation is popular with collectors of cacti and succulents; I've never seen a crested poison oak plant before, but I doubt any plant collectors will be after this.

nice sunset.
