Wildflowers are doing well in remaining mostly natural spots along the county's coast this year and will continue to do so into the summer. "Spots" is the operative word, as the extent of the blooming areas is limited. Native plant populations have been hammered along much of our coastal strand by residential, commercial, agricultural, and recreational development and by invasive species. One hopes more of the general public will be aroused to value and protect more natural places for their plant communities and the myriad factors, such as insect and other animal pollinators, that go into maintaining them.
