Inspired: Wildflowers

Wildflowers were out in force for our coastal ride. I tried to identify as many as I could during our many "terrain breaks," starting with silver bush lupine:

Indian paintbrush (these were shockingly bright in person):

Milkmaids? Potato flowers? Not sure:

Wild douglas iris:

Blackberry blossoms:

Sticky monkeyflower:

I also spotted yellow lupine, California poppies, crimson columbine, queen anne's lace and ceanothus, also called coast blue blossom.

There are SO many right now! This weekend we saw entire hillsides covered with bright orange poppies - amazing.
