I know we're not supposed to brag about the weather.
But the California Bay Laurel is in bloom. Hard not to feel a little spring in the path under my feet.
Found this blooming' baby on Sawyer Camp Trail, along the Crystal Springs Reservoir.

Pedicularis densiflora, a particularly attractive member of the Scrophulariaceae family and commonly known hereabouts as "Indian Warrior", is getting an early start on spring by taking advantage of a nearby Coast Live Oak, in that way that hemi-parasites have.
I spotted this particular sweetie at my favorite hangout, Edgewood Park in San Mateo County.
