The blackfoot daisies, Melampodium leucanthum, and the dahlberg daisies, Thymophylla tenuiloba.
The Indian blanket flowers, Gaillardia pulchella, and the sedum, Sedum potosinum.
the gopher plant, Euphorbia rigida. I didn't really want it down below in the sunken area but here it will stay.
The blue eyed grass, Sisyrinchium angustifolium.
The chocolate daisy, Berlandiera lyrata. This one has been here for years enjoying a cool root run under the sandstone pavers.
The California poppies. I am so glad this white one is back again this year. Eschscholzia californica.
But there are plenty of orange ones too.
And the first of the corn poppies, Papaver rhoeas.
There are a few seeders who can be a little annoying. The false garlic, Nothoscordum bivalve, with the white flowers and yellow centers and wild onion, Allium canadense, with pale purple flowers. Both are pretty but are the devil at seeding themselves and once the bulb forms they are not so easy to root out as the bulb works its way deep into the soil. This year I struck a deal with them. They can flower but they can't set seed!
We may not be able to grow those lovely pom-pom alliums but we have our own and I love the flowers.
