Spring Flowers 2009

Sprung Flowers 2009

        The drought in central Oklalahoma continues in spite of a respite last year. Water levels in ponds and reservoirs are dropping and soil moisture levels are low.
       Noticeable absent from the plant landscape or reduced in numbers this year, is the Least Bluet (Hedyotis crassifolia), False Garlic (Nothoscordum bivalve) and Shepards Purse (Capsella bursa-pastoris). Other common spring blooming plants, notable the Spring Beauty (Claytonia virginica), the weedy Red Henbit (Lamium purpureum), Common Henbit (Lamium amplexicaule), and some Chickweeds appear to be blooming at normal levels.
