The Promise of Sun...All in Flowers

I seem to just now realize, after going through my photo files, that the predominant color of wildflowers in Texas is yellow...and one of my favorites is the silver leaf sunflower [native to Texas and parts of Florida and North Carolina].

Anywhooo, I call this Mellow Yellow:

aka a baker's trekker's dozen

Common Buckeye

  1. Gorgeous gorgeous pictures!! My favorite is the Buckeye and #6, if you count each snap as separate. I have no idea what it is, or must of them! But they look like the sun come to earth. Texas must have cornered the market on yellow!

  3. I haven't thought of it before but most of the wildflowers here in Texas are yellow. I have many pictures I've taken at the ranch so I should have noticed.

  6. Maybe all the other flowers think that if they are yellow too they will also have a song written about them like the yellow rose of Texas :)

  7. So, so pretty, Anni. And I think yellow is the perfect color for wildflowers. I also like all the purples and blues we get around here, too, like lupines and penstemon. :-)

    1. Yep....I've heard it called that too...AND Glossy Senna [it's usually the size of a tree, but this particular park keeps their shrubs and plants very manicured, so in this area [the park] it's about 4-5 feet, well trimmed.
