Photographs of about 60 wildflowers in various nearby parks in the hills above Livermore, Dublin, Sunol, Pleasanton, San Ramon and Danville. Each is identified by common and scientific name. Flowers are grouped by color.
I have always enjoyed hiking and photographing the surrounding scenery. I have hiked in many different areas in the US, Canada and Europe since 1960. I noticed many attractive flowers while hiking but their names remained unknown to me. In 2005, I started to take wildflower photographs and then attempted to identify each.This book is a result of those efforts. Many of these flowers can also be found in other western states in the US.
