Wildflowers Last Longer Near Adelbert

Photo: Diane Edwardson, April 22, 2009. This unusual plant is drying up quickly, but is still in bloom above the Viaduct Footings. (Click on photo to enlarge.)

The wildflowers between Adelbert and the Viaduct Footings benefit from the more northerly facing slope and tall trees on either side of the Red Car Property producing more shade than on the rest of the property. The slopes seems to hold moisture longer since they are not blasted by direct sun all day long. There are still green patches of grass and lots of new wildflowers coming up.
