Don't know if wild mustard flowers have had such an impact on the rest of America but they certainly have in Northern California and the Napa- Bay Area in particular. Not many years ago Napa celebrated the bright yellowness , that has become a Napa tourist attraction in Spring, with the Mustard Festival where folks could taste different mustards paired with wines at various wineries and stores of Napa.. Though that tradition was disrupted even before covid, there was a bumper crop of mustard in 2022 which had one of the most spectacular viewings ever. And, mustard can still be seen in places like Briones, below. But don't wait much longer as the heat's about to lay waste to what remains.
