As of February 28th, the hills are green and the grape soda lupine, slender keel fruit and filaree have started to bloom. The first buds have been seen on the poppy plants, so our first poppies should begin blooming in a couple weeks. Because the rains started late and then came on heavily, it wasn’t the optimal precipitation pattern for poppies so we’re expecting a moderate poppy bloom at best, possibly lasting through mid-April.
Weekly bloom updates will be posted through Mother’s Day.
