February Blues

Water droplets adorn a pale blue wildflower after an early spring rain, California


This time of year can feel a bit like limbo – with each new glimpse of warmer spring weather, a sizable snow storm or cold week of rain becomes a dreary seasonal setback. The coastal California climate is remarkably mild, and our winters tend to be full of green pastures and wind-battered trees. Spring shows itself in small bursts of wildflowers, which emerge after even the shortest spell of warm sunny days. Often this colorful respite is short-lived, as the inclement weather returns for weeks at a time. Sometimes laying down in the muddy dampness of a February field is the only way to get close enough to truly believe these fleeting signs of the shifting season…

Looking for evocative, unique floral and botanical images from every season? This lovely little blue spring flower is part of my Stock Photography | Botanical collection where you will find leaves, petals and botanical details in a range of colours and fine art compositions.
