While running errands today, I stopped for a quick walk around the hilltop to see what's in bloom, if anything. Last time, we saw Ranunculus Californicus and Sanicula acrtopoides (thanks to Garden of La Mancha for the ID).
We still have those.
A little bit of lupine.
Our own endemic Zigadenus?
Two views of Triteleia
Lots of plantago.
And, I'm very happy to say, Dodecatheon. I couldn't decide which picture to use.
Not bad for early March in the middle of San Francisco, eh?
Also today, this hawk. Usually they fly too high for me to get pictures of, but this one was hunting low.
People stopped in their tracks to watch it.
I got a few shots before he dove, and then flew away.
Hopefully he found some gophers to eat so we'll have some fritillaries and lilies to look at in a few weeks!
