Spring 2014 Bay Area Wildflower Photos

April showers bring May flowers … if there are April showers! Here at Bay Nature, we’ve been wondering about how drought will affect the Bay Area’s wildflowers. And we’re wondering when, and where, this year’s flowers will appear. So we’re going to post photos and locations as we see them, and we want you to do the same. See a flower on the trail? Take a picture, note the location, and email it to flowers@baynature.org!
