First Spring Flower

Hi! I'm about to emerge from the Plant a Day hibernation.


Because I saw my first native wildflower this morning, a lomatium! It was unexpected and thrilling. I didn't have my camera with me but will try to get back and photograph it soon.

Looking forward to a fun season of photographing and identifying more of the Snake Valley flora.

P.S. I just did a search on my blog and found that this was the same flower I saw last year as my first flower. But last year it was March 26, and this year March 6, so we are quite a bit earlier this year (or perhaps last year was quite a bit later due to the very cold spring).
