Looking rather windblown. The coreopsis is one of the dominant species in those spectacular hillside displays; this shot shows the foliage more clearly. However, it is joined here by a different lupine: the Mojave Royal Lupine, found in the true desert, is similar to the Valley Lupine seen on the grassland hillsides, but the plants are smaller, the flowers are a more intense royal blue, and the leaves are all basal (sprouting from the base of the plant instead of along a stem).

Had this IDed as Dune (O. deltoides), but not sure I correctly eliminated similar sp. Then again, I may have done so & now don't remember how. :-) Mojave Desert, in a protected draw right at the base of the San Gabriel Mtns.

California Poppies can grow as either annuals or, less commonly, perennials. The perennials are usually just slightly larger clumps within the carpet of annuals, but this was a true prize specimen, growing all by itself on the edge of a shallow wash.
