With all the rain we've gotten in the last couple months I hope that we'll be seeing an abundance of wildflowers. It seems like things should start blooming pretty soon, come to think of it!

twister: I feel pretty confident that the bloom will be pretty good this year. Young plants are popping up all over the place. I expect to see plenty of flowers beginning in two or three weeks and continuing through the end of April at the lower elevations. Already you can see brown-eyed evening primrose flowers all around town.

More and more flowers are starting to show up in the desert and in yards around the area. It may not be a spectacular year, but it's looking like it will at least be a good year. Enjoy the flowers while they last, cuz they won't last long!

panamint_patty: It's getting close to peak. Hopefully the weather stays nice and it doesn't get too windy. The wind can do a lot of damage!

Twister: Very cool post! Looks like a lot of interesting flowers in that area and the idea of some blooming that haven't been seen in years is quite intriguing!
