Coast Sunflower at Crystal Cove

None of my pictures really captures it, but Crystal Cove right now is blanketed in Encelia californica!  So cheery.

We went out on a cold blustery afternoon and the 4 o’clock golden light coming in and out of clouds onto the warm yellow flowers almost made them glow against an otherwise grey backdrop. In that same light the Coyote bush showed up lime green and the Artemisia, well, it glowed with its own sage scrubby cool green.
