A glimpse of Spring,
of fields of yellow mustards,
and patches of bright orange poppies,
to lift the spirits & cheer the heart!
I love Mt Diablo State Park, especially in the Spring when all the wildflowers are in bloom! Ken and I typically visit several times every year in April-May just to see the fields of bright orange poppies (see my poppy field pics here!). This year, we decided to visit a bit earlier than usual, in March, to explore the early Spring scenery and wildflowers, and were not disappointed! The park was lush with fresh greenery and filled with wildflowers!

Early Spring at Mt Diablo State Park
It was a beautiful Spring day at the park, with lush green fields, colorful wildflowers, and trees starting to leaf. We saw beautiful fields of wild yellow mustard interspersed with purple lupines, and numerous bunches of bright orange California poppies along North Gate Road. While the poppies were not as numerous as in April-May, it was still a beautiful, cheerful and magical sight.
Being avid photographers, we brought our cameras and were happy to capture some scenes from the beautiful Spring day. All photos were captured with a Nikon D750 with a 50mm lens, available from Amazon.
