The alternating predominance of white and red in two more views of lush wildflowers on the Blackland Prairie in Pflugerville on May 6th

with 38 comments

Red with yellow fringes = firewheel, Indian blanket; Gaillardia pulchella.
Yellow = sundrops, square-bud primrose; Oenothera capillifolia.
Yellow-orange = greenthread; Thelesperma filifolium.
White = prairie bishop; Bifora americana.

The dark vertical stalks are the remains (with a few flowers) of Indian paintbrushes, Castilleja indivisa.
