A few days ago, we talked with botanist Pat Leary of the College of Southern Nevada and Patrick Donnelly of the Amargosa Conservancy about the early bloom in parts of Nevada and California.
Because of the rain in the fall, flowers that usually start to bloom at the end of February began to bloom, this season, at the beginning of January.
Leary visited Death Valley this past Friday and Saturday – and we thought it would be fun to get a Death Valley early bloom report from him.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
