Skyline Serpentine Prairie is in Redwood Park in Oakland. The highlight today was the Yellow Mariposa Tulip Calochortus luteus, which has started bloom and was fairly abundant. In bloom in good numbers were also California Poppy Eschscholzia californica, Hayfield Tarweed Hemizonia congesta ssp. luzulifoli and Ithurielís Spear Triteleia laxa. Soap Root were also present, but don't bloom until later in the day. There were a few of the rare and endangered Presidio Clarkia Clarkia franciscana.
