If you haven’t participated in my contest to win a free copy of my 2013 photo calendar yet, today is the last day, so hurry and let your friends know about it too!

I don’t know how cold it is where you live, but here in inland San Diego County, it’s freezing! And no, I’m not exaggerating, it actually froze last night when the outside temperature got below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Let’s just hope the cold weather doesn’t stay for too long, since it can do a lot of damage to the local avocado and citrus crops.

If it’s cold where you are, I have a few photos that will hopefully warm you up  bit. I took them last spring, when the warm sun laid its gentle rays on thousands of bright and colorful California wildflowers at a local park. Remember you can click on each photo for a larger view.

I used the first photo of wildflowers in my 2013 photo calendar, as it represents Southern California in the early spring perfectly.

Here’s a similar style of photo, but showing a different type of flowers.

Here’s another photo of the light pink wildflowers. I believe they are called Hungarian breadseed poppies. They’re very pretty with their delicate shades of pink!

Finally, here’s an assortment of colors for you: light pink, purple, orange and red. Somebody had fun throwing these seeds all over.

I hope you feel warmer inside, if not on the outside!

    • Thank you! It’s chilly and flowerless here, but with all the rain we’ve been having, I think our surroundings will eventually turn from brown to green, a welcome sight!

  1. They are beautiful. The white and pink ones I see around other Houston while I spotted the orange yellow towards the hill country. I miss California. We live there for almost 4 years. My son wants to see his birthplace one day. Wonderful post.

    • Thank you! I saw you lived in Northern California, which is cooler than here in San Diego, lucky you. You could probably make a road trip to California when your son is old enough to remember it for life. There’s a lot to see and I still have to explore most of it.

I'd love to hear what you think about my photos. Please leave your comments below.
