Heart on Rock Wall at Lover’s Point

We’ve just returned from a trip celebrating our anniversary along the California coast. One of the most scenic places we visited was Lover’s Point at Monterey, California. The pink ice plants are particularly stunning this time of year!

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.

    Beautiful. Don’t you just love the hot purple ice plant in California?

    • Pam says:

      Yes, it is an all-time favorite! The first time I saw a picture of it I thought it couldn’t possibly be real – but it is.

    When was it taken?

    • Pam says:

      The pink flowers are best in late April and May, depending on rain. In general, wildflowers in the region overall seem to peak about the 3rd week of April. These pictures were taken last May 2013.
