Mariposa Lilies have shown up in other parts of the Preserve so we’re going to scout the Lookout Trail for them this morning. They were in that area around Aprit 25th last year but flowers seem a little early this year so we might get lucky.

Another wonderful photo op to watch out for (in the same area) is Colorado Four O’clocks. Large showy, pale magenta/pink flowers are a real treat to see. Last year they showed up the first week of May. We’ve been noticing the plants coming up but no flowers yet.
