NATURE — I've been getting a lot of queries regarding where to go to see spring wild flowers. I've been trying to explain that thing are a bit late this year, and the snow falling outside my downtown window today, April 18, sort of reinforces my postiion.
Meantime, the buttercups are still taking the spotlight…later int he spring than normal, while grasswidows were still prolific in the Dishman Hills on Saturday.
One reader called to say shooting stars were blooming in the Twin Lakes (and I'll bet the Fishtrap) areas of Lincoln County sage country.
Remember, the Spokane area hasn't yet had a day that reached 60 degrees. On the average, we hit one of those days in March. The latest on record is April 20…we're closing in on it!
