|Bluebonnet, Texas State Flower|
Yesterday, once again, I took some of the back roads, looking for wildflowers. As you can see, the roads are narrow, forcing you to move over in the grass when meeting an oncoming vehicle.
Although we are in very dry conditions, the Bluebonnets are in abundance on the roadsides.
Many times, the Indian Paint Brush (Castilleja spp.), is found growing with the bluebonnets.
The petals of the pink evening primrose (Oenothera speciosa) are very delicate, lasting only for the day.
Often, they are seen growing in small patches.
Along the road, I spotted the Texas Wild Spiderwort.
Yellow wildflowers are always an eye-catcher.
Because of the delicate lavender color of the wild verbena, it is sometimes over-looked.
