The Baker Creek area north of Ketchum was carpeted with a bloom of white mule’s ears flowers over the weekend. The flowers are in the sunflower family, yet with white petals. They are named after the large hairy leaves that resemble mule’s ears and are found only in Idaho and neighboring states. Mule’s ears typically grow along seasonal streams and in moist meadows. Many other varieties of flowering plants are showing their colors in the region following heavy rains earlier this spring.
