Flower Festivals

Tip-toe through the … wildflowers. Although for much of the Northern Hemisphere it’s still winter, spring comes early to our seaside hamlet. As such, the air has been tinged of late with the sweet smell of jasmine and wildflower carpets are springing up on the hillsides. Saturday, March 11, you can see the colorful feral flora up close when a Sierra Club staffer will lead hikers to the best spot for viewing and photographing wildflowers in Santa Barbara County. Call Tony at 687-1929 for details.
