Wildflowers and Water

Water flowing in a little creek near Lake Silverwood... 
...and some wildflowers growing on the creek banks, or very near the banks.  This is Ceanothus,
commonly called California Mountain Lilac.  It doesn't smell like real lilacs, but it does have a lovely, sweet scent that reminds me of honey. 
Yellow California poppies.  They're usually orange. 
These pretty little flowers are Phacelia, a member of the waterleaf family.  It's native to California, Nevada and Oregon.
And lots of wild mustard...I don't think there is anywhere that this plant doesn't grow.  It even grows above the arctic circle. 
Further down, the creek picks up speed before finally flowing into Lake Silverwood (pictured below).

  1. What beautiful photos! I certainly enjoyed seeing them. And who knew California has a place called Victoria? Not this Canadian! Lake Silverwood is beautiful and reminds me of my childhood home in BC's Okanagan Valley. — K
