They're late this year in La Honda. Something about the climate wasn't to their liking. But a misty fog clears, and they're here at last, in abundance.
It always fascinates me how the buds are pink, but the flowers quickly turn to that rich blue as they are exposed to the light. Occasionally, I see one that remained pink (always in a shadow). Then with more exposure, the deep blue fades to a pale shade.
Myosotis Latifolia. Of the Borage family (Boraginaceae).
