Wildflowers near L.A.

I went on a hike in Wildwood park in Thousand Oaks. Wildwood and several other parks merge to form a large open space, much needed in this land of suburbia. It makes this place so unique and valuable. I was interested in checking on some endemics that grow there. I took Santa Rosa trail which goes over Montclef ridge  I was surprised at how nice and greened up it was. The red and buff  volcanic rock made the prefect backdrop, especially coupled with the blue skys. I saw many of the early spring flowers like shooting stars and blue dicks.I also saw  a lot of stuff just starting to flower. Crypantha, california poppies, phacelia, fiddleneck,chia, wishbone bush, everlasting, gilia,bladder pod, shiny lomatium, buckwheat,lupine, rattlesnake weed, goldfields and some flowers I don’t know. Things are looking good in L.A.
