Purple Flowers


My drive to and from work is so pretty this time of year. On one side, there are grassy mountains in the distance surrounding the canyon I drive and, on the other, there are these sandy hills. That plant in the foreground with the purple flowers is sprinkled all over the hills, very pretty. I’m not sure what it is though. It grows like lavender and the flowers have a little bit of yellow on them and smell kind of like honeysuckle or fruit blossoms. If you’re reading this mom, please excuse my native plant ignorance. I’ve tried to find out what plant this is a few times without finding a definitive answer.

It looks like Lupin but I need to see the leaves to be certain. Sunday I spent on Breckenridge Mountain just east of Bakersfield and there were already California poppies blooming on the hillsides. Beautiful!
