The start of the wildflower season!
My friend Ron sent me a note the other day asking about flower stops along the way east to Spokane. He wanted to find Yellow Bell , Fritillaria pudica. I suggested some Central Washington spots, like Moses Lake south to White Cliffs at Hanford. As an afterthought I threw in the area burned by last years fires from Cle Elum to Ellensburg. Ron said said he was itching to start the season and I have to agree; it has been a long Winter.
I have already visited Washington Park to check out early signs of Fawn Lily and Calypso. The only flowers out and about were the Blue-eyed Mary and Prairie Stars.
