[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The caretaker for the Painted Hills Unit told us upon our arrival that the wildflowers were not to be seen this year other than a few stragglers, but as we walked in the rear areas we found an abundance of wildflowers in all stages of bloom. This purple ball was one of the most beautiful flowers that we found along our trail, along with the sunflowers, Hedgehog Cactus, and a few others.
Anyone know the name of this beauty?

Hi Steve
I'm pretty sure this is Purple Prairie-clover. It also blooms in white. It's very pretty and I love the deep fuchsia pink colour and yellow tips. A good birds eye view.

Hallo Steven
I can only but think how wonderful the sight must have been seeing one wildflower after another. This flower reminds me of a powder puff. The colours are wonderful to look at, so also the detail of the anthers. It is really beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
