Mary and I went out scouting the southern areas for any signs of wildflowers. Nothing yet. upset

We did see some barrel cactus buds and a lot of green grass so it looks like it may be a decent wildflower season.
I am far from an expert but I would say at least another 3 weeks .


The Ocotillo look extremely healthy and are covered with thick green leaves so hopefully that is a sign of things to come .

We will head back out in a few weeks to check things out.

Still waiting for all of the Desert Dandelions to come up in the south.
Back in 2011 when Daren and I hiked into Canebrake from Indian Valley the flowers were everywhere.



Last weekend the Barrel Cacti in Indian Valley were looking pretty good.

Camped Tuesday night (3/15) in northern AB. Lovely afternoon and evening but not a whole lot going on re wildflowers. Some brown-eyed primrose and a few desert lily already gone to seed around Arroyo Salado and Truckhaven areas. Henderson Canyon road area quite a lot of sunflowers past prime and some dune primrose but not a lot else. Ocotillos vary from green and lush to looking rather poor. But frankly, i prefer when the wildflowers are subdued. Less people and less problems with my allergies.
