While on a short drive the other evening, my husband and I came across a lovely field full of wildflowers just blooming their little hearts out.
I love the different names of the flowers. This one is Fleabane.
This is Purple Prairie Clover.
Here is a Black Eyed Susan.
Prairie Coneflower looks like it’s wearing a festive yellow skirt.
Here is Golden Crownbeard. Who comes up with these names?
Deptford Pink is really cute. The flowers only measure about a half inch across.
Last, but not least, is my favorite, Coreopsis.
It’s bright and cheerful,
it laughs at heat and drought and keeps on blooming,
and this cute little bug thought it was a great place to hang out and relax.
We’ve been having a generous amount of rain this year, so all the wildflowers are doing well.
Thanks for coming along, and hope you enjoyed your walk among the flowers.
