Clarkia amoena / Evening Primrose Family
June 23, 2006
I was very excited to find this beautiful flower blooming along Hwy. 9. I had seen another Clarkia, the "Elegant" variety, but it was blooming along the side of the road at an intersection and there was a Monterey County deputy behind us, I didn't think it would be the best time or place to jump out of the car and take a photo! Being carted off to the police station would not be a good way to start a trip!
