Adelbert Ave: Wildflowers As Art

Photo: Diane Edwardson, March 22, 2015.  The wildflowers are really just starting to bloom at Site #1 on Adelbert Ave.  (Click on photos to enlarge.)

Wildflowering LA was an art project that didn't do as well in all the sites last year (2013-2014) year due to the severe drought.  This year's longer, steady rain seems to have been just right for the Adelbert site planted on October 31, 2014.  The limited light on the slope helps keep it greener, longer.
