A Tribute to Baby Blue Eyes
(Nemophila  menziesii)
Yeah, they're our favorite flower. These are all growing along Tehachapi-Willows Springs Road in the Tehachapis, near the wind turbines. They bloom mid to late March.

“The spring breezes blow over no more beautiful and ethereal flowers than thee. Companies of them open together, dotting the sward and luring us on from one to another, the one just beyond always seeming a little brighter blue or a little more captivating that those nearer at hand, till we are beguiled into filling out hands with them.”
Mary Elizabeth Parsons,
The Wildflowers of California, 1897
