Sunflowers and Wildflowers








A short drive from home landed us in the middle of a sunflower field.  All along the road, wildflowers still in bloom.  This has been the most amazing year for wildflowers.  They just keep coming !  Right now the Standing Cypress Ipomopsis rubra (Polemoniaceae) are blooming and they are one of my favorites, with their tall red blooms.  
Fields of Indian blankets are everywhere !

Such beauty! No wonder Lady Bird Johnson wanted to protect and promote Texas wildflowers! And the sunflowers are gorgeous, too, but not wild, I think...

I'm so glad you posted again. I was afraid something happened to you, Patty. I do enjoy reading your posts.
Still praying for Mei-Ling.

Sunflowers are a favorite. This is my third season of planting saved seed--mostly from the 'dwarf' many branched varieties. I have a clump or two of Blanket Flower. The tall Red Cypress is new to me.
