The annual Wildflower Show opened at the Pacific Grove Natural History Museum this morning and will run through the weekend. With hundreds of species on display and plenty of experts on hand to answer questions, you can learn more about the native flora in an hour here than you can in a week anywhere else. They say it’s the biggest wildflower show in the northern and western hemispheres (does that mean there’s a bigger one in South Africa, or somewhere?). And it only costs five bucks! But it’s one weekend only. Miss it and you’ll have to wait for next year.
Hours are 10 to 5.
