Fine flower and water displays now in Yosemite Spring is striding up Yose- mile's Merced River Canyon by leaps and bounds with the warm days which followed late storms. Syringa is in bloom near the Arch Rock Ranger Station, and the plumy branches of white California Lilac (Cea- nothus) droop over the blue lupine bordering the road from El Porta! into the Valley as Ear as the cascades. Best of all, the dogwood is finally coming out after being retarded by the weather. From the dam up the river to Fern Spring and Pohono Bridge area, along Tenaya Creek near the Iron Spring and at Happy Isles, the pale green petal-like bracts are developing, encircling the liny darker green pin-heads which are the real flowers. Down the canj'on below El Portal the poppies are brilliant on the slopes, and there are broad scatter-rugs of vivid baby- blue eyes. In the Merced River Canyon, the scarlet, of Indian pink is competing with the Indian paint brush on the grassy edge of the read-cuts, and stonecrop, with its thick leaves and orang- to-red flowers, clings in the crevices of the rust-mottled rocks. Along the Big Oak Flat Road, which recently opened, several species of lupine are presaging a bumper crop. The long spikes of the gray bush lupine have answered the sun and come into blossom; the plants of three or four other varieties are flun_ up the slopes and gullies. Paintbrush is blooming there, too, and bush pentstemon is ready to put out its delicate snapdragon-like flowers. On the short turn-off road to Foresta and Big Meadov/s the harlequin lupine is more aboundant than usual. At Foresta, the pine-studded slopes seem a nest of singing birds; mountain quail and gray squirrels scamper across the dirt side-roads; Brewer blackbirds cluster for their frequent consultations, and redwinged blackbirds swoop with their siz- iling cry to a precariousland- ing on grass or sedge in the broad meadow. Glimpses of the high country from various points still show a smooth white mantle cover it, but at 7,000 feet or thereabouts, snow rims the ridges, but dwindles to ' patches on southward-looking slopes, while down the shady sides there may be three or four feet of snow, except where small streamlets have undermined the banks or the thick dark holes of red :irs have melted the snow around them. At Badger Pass, the snow still lies deep on the slopes, but in the meadow it is running off at a great rate, and in a few weeks the marsh-marigolds will be spreading their sunlight-yellow blossoms among shiny green leaves along the meadow-edge. In the Chinquapin region the :harming iavender-blue flowers of another Ceanothus (Ceanot- hus prostratus) so inconspicuous that one must watch for them to find them, are popping out from the flat green mats which drape over boulders on the roadsides. Rivulets and dashing stream are among the delights of this season, and that is especially true this year, along the Big Flat Road, for instance, near the top of the grade at the Cascades and Tamarack Creek. Around the Valley walls, too, Ihe filmy veils of Ribbon and Sentinel Falls, Staircase and Royal Arch drift in the afternoon breezes. The main falls are near their peak.
