Spring Forward: Lupines Come Early to LA State Historic Park

We're having wild weather, indeed, and with winter's arrival, it doesn't seem right to be thinking about cheery purple blooms dotting our greenspaces, and yet at Los Angeles State Historic Park they're already getting a preview of the lupines that will blanket the park come spring. Today the LASHP blog posted this:

A short hike through the park revealed one of our favorite wildflowers has already started to bloom, the Arroyo Lupine! Although the Lupines have not fully developed; it['s] fun to imagine the sea of purple that will blanket our park come March. So if you are jonesing for some wildflowers, now you know where to start.

To help get you in the mood for sunnier days and the blossoms of spring, enjoy some pics from seasons past of lupines in bloom at LASHP.
