I wouldn't say that this year was a dud, but it wasn't really quite as good as I expected based on all the rain we got. It seems to have been pretty good in some localities, but not all that great in the Ridgecrest and Trona area. I'm sure there were hot spots, but I'm sorry to say I must have missed them!

WILDFLOWERS: How to PLANT and GROW wildflowers that COME BACK YEAR after YEAR!
This lady is from Mesa, AZ. A lot of what she says might work here in Trona and Ridgecrest. Mesa is low desert and we're more like high desert, but there would be a lot of similarities for the most part.

Gernaiums are one of my favorites and this one is really nice!
