Today’s Thursday Picture is of Aqualegia elengantula commonly known as Columbine.
CORRECTION: Thanks to some sharp eyed readers who are “in the know” about flowers, I believe that the correct name of this flower is a Aquilegia formosa ! Thank you Cindy! Please visit Cindy’s great blog, “Dipper Ranch.” Cindy always has something interesting to read!
I took this shot on the Zinfandel Trail at the Picchetti Ranch Open Space Preserve in Cupertino, California.
Where is Picchetti Ranch OSP? I am going to try something new starting with this post. Because San Jose State University is centrally located in downtown San Jose, I will be referencing all of my hikes with a Google map that shows a distance from SJSU to that location. I’m going to call this section,
“How far from San Jose State?”
Picchetti Ranch OSP is only a short 30 minute drive from San Jose State Universtiy and downtown San Jose.
So, where are you hiking this weekend?
If you’re looking for me, I’m over the hill.
