In the spring 05 I was hiking in the Pinnacles when I came accross a hillside of shooting stars. They were so pretty and unexpected. I'll go up there this spring (with my camera) and see if they are blooming.
Were they blooming?
I don't think there was much of a bloom this year; it has been pretty dry. When I've been hiking in the area where I saw the shooting stars previously, I saw mainly grasses. This was in March & April...just a few flowers...no shooting stars...
Thank you for putting up an album of one of my favorite types of plants. They are so dainty and charming yet so tough.
Thanks Kerstin. You seem to have a very interesting yard.
