Spring Flowers in Bloom Along Ocean View Blvd., Pacific Grove, California

Spring Flowers in Bloom Along Ocean View Blvd., Pacific Grove, California

Pacific Grove is one of the most scenic towns on the California coast. Though I had been there a number of times in my life, I had never visited during the spring months until now. The entire coastline was lined with these purple flowers and carpeted with bright pink flowers. I definitely want to go back next spring for a longer trip and spend some time photographing the flowers in different types of light.

  1. I love Pacific Grove too Richard – such a cool little town. We do a bike trip each year down the Big Sur coast that starts in PG on 17 Mile Drive. It’s easy to see why Ansel Adams and Edward Weston loved that area so much!

  2. Nice. Sounds like a grueling bike ride, Russ. Since you mentioned Weston, I was reminded that I need to photograph Weston Beach at Point Lobos. I still haven’t visited that part of the park yet.

  3. Lovely pic, I am actually searching google for the purpose of finding the name of those purple flowers. Can you help? Thank you!

    • Thanks James. I believe these purple flowers may be called “echium”. I mislabeled them on another photo as bush lupine but someone told me they were echium.
