These tiny Sand Blossoms, Linanthus parryae, are among my seasonal favorites. When the timing and conditions are right, they will carpet large areas of the Alabama Hills and the Owens Valley with purple and white blooms. I found these at the base of the eastern Sierra. You'll want to get on your tummy to see these at ground level.
This was one of those times you'd wish for your own, personal Groundhog's Day; a chance to relive this over and over....
Please come follow my latest endeavor, the Wildflower Conservancy. You'll find lots of helpful information as well as reports on recent wildflower sightings. Thank you!
