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 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!
