In the Yard in Glen Rose, Texas on May 19 08- the Wild Flower bonanza

19 May 2008 at 3:20:18 PM

In an article about Bush's daughter getting married in Crawford, Laura Bush made the comment that the wildflowers were almost past their peak. I'm sure she was referring ONLY to bluebonnets, because they are in the stage of going to seed right now (In fact, I'm waiting to mow some more of the yard once they're seeded, because then you don't have to re-sow again in the fall -the only problem is that they're unsightly but well worth putting up with.)

But bluebonnets are not the only wildflowers that are in bloom, and I always have something in bloom, continuously, throughout the summer. Today, here are some of the flowers that are in the field. I have the Texas Wildflowers Field Guide by Campbell and Loughmiller and have tried to identify them-with SOME success. Would love it if you know what the unidentified ones are if you would comment. Incidentally, I just started using Photoshop rather than the other software I have been using.. .FOR TEN YEARS... and it really did a wonderful job on the pics.
