April showers most certainly bring May flowers, but we actually have a rainy winter to thank for a super-bloom Peninsula spring. Photographer Frances Freyberg captured this eye-popping field of poppies at the 6,100-acre La Honda Creek Open Space Preserve, which opened to the public in 2017. Considered the gateway to the San Mateo Coast, La Honda Creek offers 10.7 miles of trails through open rolling grasslands, forest and redwood trees. Frances Freyberg will be showcasing some of her favorite Bay Area open spaces in Views from the Trail, an exhibit at the Portola Art Gallery at the Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park through the month of May.
