You know the saying: April showers bring May flowers. Unfortunately, we didn’t get much rain in April, but we do have flowers! They won’t last long, so get out and see them while you can.
Wildflowers bloom at different times throughout spring, but right now, early bloomers and late bloomers are both out near the summit of Mount Diablo. And there are lots of flowers blooming in other parts of the park too (like Mitchell Canyon). A large diversity of flowers is out, and some streams still have water.
