Carrizo Plain Wildflower Update 2/28/11

Carrizo Plain National Monument reports on 2/28/11:

“Due to cool / cold weather the wildflowers have gone into hibernation.  The morning of February 26 over two inches of snow fell in the Monument. A few Goldfields, Hillside Daisies and Fiddleneck are beginning to show up at the south end and east side of the monument. The Hillside Daisies are noticeable but do not occur in large quantities.  Because of recent the warm weather, the flowers are two to three weeks ahead of schedule.  However, the weather forecast for the next 10 days is colder, ranging from the mid-50s during the days to twenties and thirties at night.”
