It is a very interesting year the Brittlebush started blooming last year and is now on its 2nd and 3rd set of blooms so they are looking tired but still could carpet. Poppies are all over the Central locations and should last a few more weeks if not longer with coming rains. March is the month get out there and get some of this we may not see it again for years.
