Starting to see the first flowers come out in the Valley. Of course, El Portal and Hite Cove have been excellent for a while. I haven't seen much in the Valley until yesterday. The dogwoods are starting to bloom. This morning, I took a quick walk up above the Wawona Tunnel and not too far from the tunnel, started seeing Shooting Stars, Mountain Violets and Spreading Phlox (and an Evening Grosbeak chattering away).
Not much yet, but once again it has begun!
