Spring Wildflowers - Part X

After returning home, on April 19th we made a return trip to Figueroa Mountain to see what the wildflower status was.

At the lower elevations, there was a lot of Wild Mustard in bloom.
(Hirschfeldia incana)


As we started to climp the mountain, we saw quite a bit of Hummingbird Sage (aka Crimson Pitcher Sage or Crimson Sage).
(Salvia spathacea)


Sacred Datura or Jimson Weed
(Datura wrightii)


Lanceleaf Liveforever or Southern California Dudleya.
(Dudleya lanceolata)


This time the Mariposa Lilies were blooming.
(Calochortus catalinae)


Common Monkeyflower, Yellow Monkeyflower or Seep Monkeyflower.
(Mimulus guttatus)


Wild Onion


Miner's Lettuce
(Claytonia parviflora)


The Bush Lupines were just starting to really bloom.




Another Mariposa Lily.
(Calochortus catalinae)


I've admired this old oak tree for quite a while.  I finally stopped and got a picture of it.
