Wildflowers abound around Reno, Nevada. Desert wildflowers begin blooming in April. Lake Tahoe and Sierra Nevada wildflowers bloom as the snow melts and the weather warms. Look for Lake Tahoe and Sierra Nevada wildflowers to peak in July and August.
Bulbs are a favorite of many gardeners because they are easy and showy. Who can resist the first snowdrops or crocuses? Honey bees like to visit the blossoms for nectar and pollen, so I'm busy adding more bulbs to my garden just for them and for me.
