I saw this bee working a population of oxalis.
A nice yearly population just off the road in a bunch of poison oak.
These almost pure white flowering plants had to be transplanted to near the barn because of the widening of the entry road and so far don't look like they will reproduce the white flowers.
These were seen on Franz Valley Rd. until the county sprayed for weeds.
These plants are really on my property but I think it as part of Pepperwood.
These are CA Indian Pink flowers. Road work above the Dwight Center on roller coaster road may have taken out the population from which these shots were taken. I hope to see them on the west side of the road each year, but so far no luck.
This is found along the the fence on the creek side.
The area where I saw these plants was removed to make way for the widening of the road.
These plants were found in Leslie Creek, north of Mark West Lodge.
A real jewel in flower and in seed.
One of two species of Calochortus found in the meadow by the barn.
One of two Mariposa lilies found in the meadow by the barn. I like this one a bit more than the yellow, C. luteus, lily.
These plants are found in concentric circles as the water level goes down at Turtle Pond. Monarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus) are seen on these plants.
