Pacheco Park Wildflowers 4/9/18

Where to Photograph in California  has new wildflower reports

Pacheco Park The bloom is currently good, and very satisfying for a wildflower junkie, but I wouldn’t call it great for colorful landscape photography. While there are a lot of blooms, they’re mostly not dense and showy on a large scale. What’s in now: goldfields (a few nice brush strokes of them here and there), fiddlenecks, buttercups, violets, poppies, checkerbloom, popcorn flower, elderberry, blue dicks, some tomcat clover, blow wives, Q-tips and others in the minority.

It’s very green, and while the oaks are further along in leafing out, they’re still a nice vivid green as well, which is a nice combination with flowers and lichen. In some areas the grass remains on the short side, in others it has gotten taller and is starting to smother the wildflowers.
