Signs of spring

March 25, 2012

The wildflowers are peeping out at Scotts Bluff National Monument.

Nuttall's Violet

Narrow-leaved musineon

Hood's phlox

Too bad the show will likely be muted this year compared to last, on account of the dry weather.

The sunshine is strong, drying my laundry in minutes, and causing farmers market cupcakes to sprout protective parasols.

Oh yeah . . . and the rattlesnakes are waking up. Two were spotted on Saddle Rock Trail at the monument this evening.
