California annual native wild flowers are great for a spectacular splash of color in the garden each spring. On occasion I’ll add wildflower photos here including Desert Bluebells (Phacelia campanularia), Tidy Tips (Layia Platyglossa), Meadowfoam (Limnanthes Douglasii), Bird’s Eyes (Gilia Tricolor), Chinese Houses (Collinsia Heterophylla) and much more.
