Spring always starts early in the Santa Monicas and there is plenty of sporadic blooms of many different species.
Here are a few examples from a drive I took yesterday along Pacific Coast Highway and some of the mountain roads:
There are plenty more, I have not found any fields of flowers yet just small patches of them so I wouldn’t go driving from miles away.
Unfortunately the Sunflower Trees are all past peak but everything else is blooming. I found it more of a challenge composing then anything else.
