Many flowers were in bloom but the peak probably will happen in the next two weeks. There were many flowers in bloom at the Ecological Reserve itself. There were displays of Goldfields but not Sky Lupines (although many were are in bloom). There were lots of poppies, Johnnytuck, Volcanic Onion, Table Mountain Meadowfoam, Buttercup, and violets in bloom. We only found two Bitterroots (Lewisia rediviva) in bloom but many buds. The vernal pools were drying up and didn't have a lot in bloom. To see photos and plants lists go to: http://naturalhistorywanderings.com/2012/04/07/table-mountain-wildflower-report-april-6-2012/

Ok, wow. Two things......The field of goldfields looks amazing, and that shot of the garter snake with the lizard is unbelievable! What luck to be there at the perfect time.

Keep up the good work.
