Indian paintbrushes and friends

Paintbrushes, Firewheels, Other Wildflowers 1904

Click for more sharpness.

It hasn’t been a great year for Indian paintbrushes in any of the places I’ve visited, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t show you at least one picture of Castilleja indivisa. Most of the other flowers in this photograph are firewheels, Gaillardia pulchella, and the purple ones in the background at the lower left are bluebonnets that were still vibrant on April 30. The location was FM 20 at Rio Vista Cove a few miles east of Lockhart, a town in Caldwell County some 30 miles south of Austin.
