The Monkey Flowers (Mimulus guttatus) down the hill almost at sea level have been flowering for a week now. The ones on the boggy brae are still thinking about it. Amazing what a difference 30-40 metres elevation can make! We notice it with quite a few species, such as Ox-eye daisies which are flowering away down on the coast road but holding back up on the brae. Soil leaching may be playing a part as well.
