Southern California is hot in the summer and all the hills and mountains are brown in color. However, from the end of March through the end of May, especially after some good winter rains, Southern California turns green and explodes with wildflowers and color. There are many places to see the wildflowers of Southern California, but a few of them really stand out as being particularly beautiful and very large in size. Let’s explore together some of my favorite places to see the wildflowers of Southern California.
My brother went on another vacation to Taiwan and brought back some beautiful pictures of local flowers. I think they are gorgeous. He shot a lot more pictures form different spots in Taiwan, but for now I’ll show you only the flower shots. Read on to see some great flower pictures.
Every year the Rose Parade in Pasadena, California puts on the best show. Entitled the Tournament of Roses, this amazing parade is all about flowers and in particular about roses. We always wanted to go to the Rose Parade, but with two small children coming out in the very early hours of the morning just to get a somewhat decent seat, is out of the question. So, we opted to come see the floats in what is called the Post Parade event where you come admire the floats that have been parked on a couple of wide streets. Is it really worth it? Well, read on to find out.
We visited the Sacramento Capitol park when we visited the actual State Capitol building. We didn’t rush to get inside the building but took our time to see the flowers and trees that are everywhere in the park. It was very hot outside in Sacramento that day but the abundant vegetation in park kept us a little cooler and we enjoyed our visit a lot more because of that.
Here’s another travel gallery from my brother. I have gotten used with his great pictures and I can’s wait to see them every time he comes back from vacation. This time they went to Scottsdale, Arizona. He didn’t give me any city pictures but he gave me some great nature pictures. Check out my brother’s nature pictures from Scottsdale Arizona. I love desert pictures and my brother is very patient with the camera and plans each picture very well. You can clearly see the results.
This is another travel gallery by my brother. He had so many gorgeous flower pictures that I had to create a separate gallery just for that. I hope you enjoy them just as much as I do !
