Wildflowers are nearing their peak blooming season here at Lick Observatory. The popcorn flowers, fiddlenecks, owl’s clover, and lupines are everywhere. The california poppies are just starting to appear here at the peak. Though just a few days ago it was snowing up here (it didn’t last long – only about an inch accumulated before it started melting), and tonight it looks like it might
drop to below freezing again. I’m hoping this is the last of the cold weather and that spring will be here to stay after this cold snap.
