Wildflowers In Bloom at Will Rogers Beach

For the last few weeks, I've biked by this really awesome bloom of wildflowers at Will Rogers State Beach. These flowers are Oxalis pes-caprae commonly known as sourgrass, which I ate plenty of as a kid. According to wikipedia "this sourness is caused by oxalic acid, which is toxic in large quantities and may contribute to kidney stones", who knew!!! This is by far the largest bloom I've seen there in the last 10 years. The local deserts must by spectacular.
