Red-flowering currant (ribes sanguineum) is one of the earliest natives to bloom here. Lately I’ve seen leaves unfurling on the winter wood of these bushes. This is the first and only blossom I’ve seen so far, found on a bush near the Dungeness River last Thursday.
Update: Today I saw more red-flowering currants in bloom and noticed they didn’t look like this one. Miriam clarified for me by noting that this is a salmonberry. Thank you, Miriam!
