|Dutchman's Breeches Showing |
Both Stem Types
There are many places where Dutchmen's Breeches are common. Two great spots are Smith Creek Preserve, and the entrance road to Kyles Landing (about halfway down to the river). In both these settings there are abundant wild flowers, and there is a nice bonus, in both places there are water features for cascade and waterfall fans.
|Spring Beauty at Twin Falls |
(These are tiny flowers)
Dogwoods will be in bloom in a week or two, probably within a week. Redbuds are at peak now. Often these flowering trees border waterfalls. Get here in the next week or two to get these photos, earlier to be certain with the redbuds.
|Spiderworts from 2010|
If you love wildflowers it is time to get here. We are in the early season peak and it will not continue long. Some species are already pretty much done, but the majority are not. Bloom dates vary from destination to destination, so if you don't see a certain flower in one place, it could well still be blooming in another. The wildflower show is in full gear now, don't miss it.
