San Diego's Coastal Wildflower Bloom

A middle-of-the-road wildflower display due to slightly-less-than-normal winter rainfall -- is not entirely over. Meticulous searches on slopes facing north (away from the sun) or in shady canyon bottoms (where runoff may have lingered) should reveal native red monkeyflower, blue-eyed grass, wild hyacinth, and nonnatives such as chrysanthemum and mustard. Irrigated freeway embankments, with showy African daises, blooming ice-plant, and other forms of groomed landscaping, look muted but decent this spring season.
