Today we went walking along Chrissy Field in San Francisco. During the restoration of Chrissy Field several years ago, volunteers planted California native plants on the sand dunes and removed non-native invasive plants. Although it is nearing the end of February, there were flowers blooming on at least two native plants -- Beach Strawberry (Fragaria chiloensis) and Seaside Daisy (Erigeron Glaucus).
