Serpentine Soil

Serpentine Soil

California poppy (Eschscholzia californica) thrives in the serpentine soil. I believe the lone oak is a blue oak (Quercus douglasii) -- these usually appear in forests, many together, but lone blue oaks can be found. The radar dish is in the distance, on a green hill, in front of the East Bay hills.
