Beautiful spring flowers everywhere in Del Norte County California.

Real Estate Broker/Owner with (831) 626-4000 CA #01772851 HI #RB-21268

I found a spring phenomena I have never seen before, a baby pine cone! Normally I don't pay attention to pine cones until they start dropping out of the tall trees here in the fall. 

Once I start taking photos, especially on a beautiful sunny spring day, it's hard to stop. My dogs and I first went up the hill on our normal late afternoon walk where I talk some wildflower photos. 

Our neighbor has a lot of fruit trees on their huge property, the ones which attract wild animals in the fall like bears and deer. All of them are in full bloom and I've included some here.

Rhododendrons are flowers in Del Norte County that bloom everywhere, a beautiful wild flower. I also spotted some of them and added a couple here.

Another thing we have lots of up in the land of the mighty Redwood tree, are ferns. And they are ready to unfurl as you can see here also.

I am so glad I took the time to take these photos today, because they don't last long. Mother Nature has to move fast here; one day there is a flower, the next the fruit or whatever.
