Wildflowers are starting to bloom. Here’s where to see them in the Bay Area and California - San Francisco Chronicle
Passantino at Marin County Parks and Open Space.
That said, here are the best prospects in the Bay Area.
San Francisco Peninsula and coast
San Bruno Mountain State and County Park just south of the San Francisco County line has provided excellent diversity in a year where explosive blooms are less common, said Carla Schoof at San Mateo County Parks.
At San Bruno Mountain, more than 15 species were identified last week, she said, including California poppy, lupine, blue dicks, fiddleneck, Douglas iris and Indian paintbrush, but also wallflower, yellow rocket, sun cups and footsteps of spring.
Edgewood County Park in Redwood City has also provided a good sprinkling of color, Schoof said. In the past week, rangers identified Henderson’s shooting star, California manroot, California poppy, Fremont’s death camas, Pacific hounds’ tongue, warrior’s plume and tomcat clover.
In northwest Marin, the Douglas iris blooms can be a showstopper, and the best bets are around Limantour Beach at Point Reyes National Seashore and Tomales Bay State Park.
“We’re currently enjoying the purple pops of Douglas iris,” State Park Ranger Nick Turner said.
At Point Reyes, the Chimney Rock Headland can be legendary — 90 species of wildflowers can provide a coronation of spring. But winds out of the northwest and warm temperatures faded the bloom. Chimney Rock and the nearby Point Reyes Lighthouse are still enough of a draw that the Park Service is enforcing a visitor quota on weekends past the turnoff at Drakes Beach Road.
At Marin County Parks, the best prospects are at Loma Alta, Baltimore Canyon, Ring Mountain and Mount Burdell, Passantino said. Ring Mountain Preserve, off Paradise Drive in Corte Madera overlooking the Tiburon shore, can be spectacular, she said.
“Expanses of goldfields, tidy tips and other early bloomers make for a spring classic,” Passantino said. “The multicolored flowers provide a foreground for spectacular views of the bay.”
East Bay hills
Hikers at Mount Diablo State Park have been sharing their wildflower sightings through the Mount Diablo Interpretive Association. Pockets of California poppies are often sighted along North Gate Road and Summit Road. The vicinity of Murchio Gap, accessed from Eagle Peak Trail or Bald Ridge Trail, often has the widest variety. Blooms include poppies, silver lupine, Pacific pea, periwinkle and larkspur.
Across the 75 parks in the East Bay Regional Park District, the best for wildflowers are Black Diamond, Anthony Chabot, Sunol and the Briones-to-Diablo Trail.
Of these, Black Diamond Regional Preserve, south of Highway 4 near Pittsburg, ranks No. 1 — the Stewartville Trail can be one of the best shows around in early April. Lupine, paintbrush, Ithuriel’s spear, blue dicks and owl’s clover are among the sightings.
“Wildflowers are out and seem to be close to normal, even with the dry year,” said Dave Mason at park headquarters. “April is the best time year to see wildflowers in regional parks.”
Santa Clara County
This has been a good spring for yellow mustard and California poppies across the foothills above Santa Clara Valley. At headquarters for Santa Clara County Parks, Tamara Clark suggested Calero, Santa Teresa, Coyote Lake and Grant County parks.
Every April, a wild card is Almaden Quicksilver County Park, south of San Jose. The Mine Hill Trail can be a spectacular show, and early April can be best for monkey flower. Other common early arrivals can include lupine, poppies, buttercup and if you’re lucky, shooting stars.

San Anselmo artist sends free flower art to those who are sick - Marin Independent Journal
Marin’s Dave Eggers’ book, “This Bridge Will Not Be Gray,” designed placemats inspired by digestion and has been commissioned by San Francisco’s Asian Art Museum and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
Q What got you into art?
A My background is more as an academic, initially. I knew from a very early age that art intrigued me and it was this unspeakable language that definitely got under my skin, in a good way. In college, I was looking at an image of a simple ink painting from 500 years ago at the other side of the world –I was in Rhode Island — feeling a surge in my sternum about it. I never really stopped trying to find that and figure out what it is and make peace that it’s not something that can be explained, it’s just something you can participate in, as a maker, a facilitator and a viewer.
Q What drew you making flower art?
A I have been painting flowers in one way or another for decades. My mother was a competitive flower arranger, and a garden and floral designer, among other things, so I grew up in a house full of flowers. But, I didn’t think of them as a language, of sort, and then that started to develop more and more as I had my own health issues.
Q What inspired you to send these flower drawings?
A I have been doing that way before I ever considered myself an artist. I have always loved sending things in the mail and I have also been struck by how when things get difficult for people, it seems like nobody knows what to say. Part of the reason why flowers become such a tool for communicating in those circumstances is that they don’t mean anything, the exact same flowers can be sent to say “I love you,” “miss you” or “congrats” or “thank you,” or “I can’t believe you’re gone” or “get well soon.” I think part of the reason people have turned to them is it’s outside of words and they just do the one thing that people really want to communicate. What people really want to hear is “I’m thinking of you,” “I’m here,” an acknowledgement of relationship, whatever it is.
Q How did the project turn into what it is today?
A I just ask for people to send me an email with the full na... Oct 15, 2020
The Artists Giving New Life to Fake Flowers - The New York Times
Green Vase. She studied at the San Francisco Art Institute, working in flower shops along the way, and becoming a (live) floral stylist at Martha Stewart. Cetti sells her stems — made from a special crepe or tissue paper that she bleaches or dyes herself — at John Derian, the home décor shop in Manhattan’s East Village. The Berkeley, Calif., artist Anandamayi Arnold, 45, makes everything from pomegranates to irises (rhizome included) covered in richly hued crepe paper. Her decorative blooms also double as party favors: The hollow insides hold secret trinkets like friendship bracelets and stickers.Then there’s Sourabh Gupta, 30, who grew up in northern India, and who constructs his microscopically detailed blooms — Queen Anne’s lace, lady’s slippers and hellebore anchored in distressed terra-cotta or stone pots — in his Brooklyn studio, using everyday materials: Petals are made from paper towels hand-painted with food dye, coffee and tea; stamens are made from kitchen sponges. Boulder, Colo.-based Stephanie Redlinger, 39, a former graphic designer who launched her paper botanical atelier, the Florasmith, in San Francisco in 2015, considers her flowers and the mushrooms she has perfected, made primarily from crepe paper embellished with materials like sand, “as botanical portrait or homage” — realistic but with an emphasis on each creation’s essential quirks, such as a poppy’s wrinkles. The paper artist Zoe Bradley, 47, whose studio is in Cowbridge, near Cardiff, Wales, takes a more abstract, performative approach to her flowers. She began her career at the fashion house Alexander McQueen, where she built wooden legs and fan-shaped corsets for one of the designer’s elaborate runway shows, and her psychedelic-meets-origami blossoms, which she creates from stiff metallic paper, have been displayed in the windows of London stores including Liberty and Harrods.And then there’s Tiffanie Turner, based in Fairfax, Calif., who is widely acknowledged as the progenitor and doyenne of the new generation of paper-flower makers, teaching popular workshops on the subject. She shows her work in galleries and museums, like the a... Sep 7, 2020
