April 19, 2007: A number of plants are beginning to bloom along the central John Day River, including Chaenactis nevii. With fairly abundant rainfall this spring, I believe bloom in the Painted Hills should pretty good, perhaps by the first or second weekend of May (NOTE: Sadly the rest of April and May were dry, so wildflower bloom in the lowlands really dropped off!). Patches of snow still can be found above 4000' in the western blue Mts and and mountains to the north of Mitchell, OR. Good open forest plants should be visible and beginning bloom to about 3000'. Prairie and sagebrush wildflowers should also begin bloom up to 3000' soon if they haven't already. Good May flower drives include Oregon Highways 19, 206, 207 and 217. Traffic is minimal on these roads, so stop when you see flowers to investigate what they are! Just be careful to pull fully off the road as people drive fast out here and obey private property signs.
