To All,
Spring is coming on strong here in Grass Valley. Almost all the various 
daffodils and narcissus and anemones are blooming now. Erythronium 
multiscapoideum is in late bud, early bloom, Dichelostemma capitatum is 
bursting out everywhere in the local foothills in numbers I have never seen 
before. We were up on Walker Ridge this weekend and the Fritillaria 
pluriflora were larger and more bountiful than we have previously seen and 
in peak bloom- absolutely beautiful palette mixed with hundreds of blooming 
Indian Warrior and thousands of Shooting Stars! The Fritillaria liliacea 
was also in peak bloom at Jepson Prairie. Near Middletown we found many 
blooming Fritillaria affinis and Allium falcifolium in a serpentine area. 
This looks to be one of the most floriferous springs for a long time.
