Other Flowers (with or without poppies)
While poppies (and lupine) are the dominant players in our Marin County spring, there are a few other flowers. A number of them at Point Reyes Chimney Rock area are shown HERE. A few more were found at Stafford Lake and out on Hicks Road. Please scroll down.

Below, some checkerbloom (aka checker mallow), with poppies.
Below, a flower I had never seen before called Brass Buttons (Cotula coronopifolia). This water-loving plant was carpeting the shore of the Las Gallinas Sanitary Ponds where I usually find ducks and geese. Not many birds on this day, but lots of brass buttons!
