The Lupines Have Come Early This Year

Rain clouds blanket the Downtown skyline


With all the rain we have received over the past few days, it seemed like a prime opportunity to see what new plants may be gracing our park. A short hike through the park revealed one of our favorite wildflowers has already started to bloom, the Arroyo Lupine! Although the Lupines have not fully developed; it fun to imagine the sea of purple that will blanket our park come March. So if you are jonesing for some wildflowers, now you know where to start.
