Woo-woo wildflowers!

Dense May Wildflowers 3114

The early part of the spring here was sub-par in producing big colonies of wildflowers. Intervening rains have made the second half of the season much better for grand-scale floral displays. Now we’re looking more like Texas is supposed to look in the spring, as you can see from this mix of wildflowers I found along Capital of Texas Highway at the southern edge of my neighborhood on May 4.

Yellow: Thelesperma filifolium; greenthread.

Purple: Monarda citriodora; horsemint.

Red: Gaillardia pulchella; firewheel, Indian blanket, blanket flower.
