Spring, Sprang, Sprung!

One of my favorite spring flowers, sagebrush buttercup (Ranunculus glaberrimus), is blooming in the Boise foothills. The golden blooms are often seen shining through a late spring snowfall. Today there was just warm, sunny weather.


I returned to the parking lot to find a friend getting out of his truck. He had been driving by and saw my car. He turned in, although he was sure he wouldn't actually find me...

  3. Stephanie,

    Yes, I DO recall: Seamans' Gulch Trail. And, being an incorrigible scientist, I have the GPS coordinate: 43.6923 -116.2786. Happy buttercup hunting; they're lovely.
