During my quest for bluebonnets on Friday, I was delighted at the amazing variety of wildflowers to be found right there on the sides of the roads. While everyone around here is hyper-focused on finding just the PERFECT patch of bluebonnets, I imagine that they completely overlook the abundance of other lovely flowers to be found.
Many of the flowers I found were the same as or similar to flowers that we have in Colorado, but there were also quite a few that were completely new to me. Thanks to the Wildflower Index on a great website by Gary Regner Photography, I was able to identify most of the unfamiliar blooms. Here are a few of the familiar ones as well as some of the new ones:
