Wild and Prickly
There are areas near the farm that have mass explosions of the White Prickly Poppies. It is said that a cow will not eat it, even during times of drought, because of the prickly stem.
I tried, without any sucess, to identify this wildflower. It reminds me of Queen Anne's Lace Flower. If it grows near you, let me know. Do you know it's common name?
It also grows in masses, as you can see, on the roadside in front of the farmhouse entrance.
Despite the high winds and no rain for over a month, the wildflowers continue to flourish.
