Wild Radish 2

Ken Lunders

The wild radish seems to be at its blooming peak in Rancho San Antonio Park. This hillside is carpeted with a mass of their small flowers: Some yellow, some a lovely shade of magenta, but mostly white. Soon the deer will be browsing here and the turkeys will be looking for goodies to gobble.

A crew was near the entrance gate to the park, about 1/3 mile away from this spot. They were mowing the native grasses that have grown tall from the steady rains we've had until recently. Now, without more rain, the grass is beginning to turn that golden color California is famous for, and they must cut it down to reduce the chances of wildfire in the park. They might cut this too, but I hope not.
