Tall flowers at peak

Mid-July is the moment for the tall wildflower parks in Cache Creek. Sunflower, saw groundsel and fireweed join sticky geranium and silky lupine with the greatest variety to be found along the upper Sidewalk Trail and the main trail around the Mile 1 marker. Butterflies are abundant now too, especially the showy swallowtails and Widemeyer’s admiral. The display will last a while, as these tall flowers have many blooms. They are soon to be joined by the asters, which are just now coming into bloom.
