Smith Creek Wildflowers, March 10, 2012

Posted on: Sunday, March 11, 2012 by Harvey Williams 

Ms Terri and I visited Smith Creek on Saturday to work on one of the trails and check on the start of the wildflower season. Beautiful day with blue bird sky and very comfortable temps. Water levels in the Creek were great with enough flow for excellent cascades and waterfalls. Below is a list of the wildflowers blooming now:

Harbinger of Spring

Toothwort

White Trout Lily

Yellow Trout Lily (just beginning)

Blue violets

Pale Coradalyis

Blood Root

Sharp Lobed Hepatica

It appears that the wildflower season is about a week to 10 days early this year for the early bloomers. Not sure what effect this will have on the rest of the season.
