Start Date: 4/13/2017 - End Date: 4/13/2017
Spring wildflowers are much less prolific than last year, due to less spring moisture. Seedlings are having a hard time germinating. We collected less rainwater in our storage tanks last winter than usual and are needing water earlier for irrigation. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #De Beque 7.1 SSE on 4/13/2017
