With wildflowers blooming all around us here in Southern California, I’ve been out stocking up on flower pictures for the rest of the year. On Friday I spent a couple of hours walking around the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park and got lots of good pictures. The flowers below are school bells, aka blue-dicks, very common around here, especially in coastal areas.

At least, I think that’s what they are. My wildflower ID skills are improving a bit, but they’re still pretty weak. Corrections welcome.
