Who the heck knew that there’s a spring wildflower freak out just south of San Francisco at Mori Point in Pacifica. I didn’t until I saw somebody post pics of it on Instagram back in April 2017. I don’t even remember what account it was, but as a hard core tidy tip lover I went to check it out. Parking is a little funky, but it’s also walkable from the Pacifica Municipal Pier.
Look at all the flowery goodness! Not only were there tons of shorty tidy tips, but lots of goldfields and some lupines mixed in for pops of blue.
Even if the wildflowers aren’t poppin’ it’s a great place to hike around. I love tidy tips so much that I’ve grown them a bunch of times from seed. I think I started my first batch from seed I bought at a gift shop somewhere as one of those mailable postcard things. They were so successful I collected the seed and never needed to buy them again, but you can find them at the Theodore Payne Foundation store along with a bunch of other cool California native wildflower seeds including goldfields and an assortment of 9 different lupines.
