Wildflowers in Placer County

I went out exploring this morning in the Roseville to Auburn area. There are some scattered patches of lupine, poppies and vetch along Hwy 193 and Sierra College Blvd. This very nice patch of wildflowers is in Loomis, north on Sierra College Blvd. about a mile or two, at Clover Valley Road. Best in morning, as it's probably in shade in the afternoon. I was there 9-9:30am, and the poppies were just opening up for the day.

I returned a few days later shortly before sunset, and caught the flowers in shade under the blue light of a clear blue sky.
