What a variety of gorgeous flowers you collected. AND there were snakes, too; what an adventure! It's so different here in New England. But, flowers are blooming despite the chill!
Great job on this, Jean. I love the way you painted the petals on the flowers. Just enough detail. Gaillardias are one of my favorite wild flowers. We have lots of those blooming around here. I recognize most everything except the red ones. Are those poppies?
You are lucky to find all thos wild flowers, in the ditches, here we have them only in the gardens.No, we havent't snakes!L like your colors, and the shape of the jar.
I opened your blog to compliment you on Sheba ( which is wonderful and fun ) and then I saw this beauty. Gorgeous colors. A successful bike ride.
Thanks, everyone, for the comments...Virginia, are the stripey ones the gaillardias Very sort of Mexican hat feeling.
Are there still all those poppies in Georgepatch. Years ago they tried to get something going around the RR tracks with poppies. Maybe that's where you went riding. You are so brave.
Love the perspective, a bit looking down.
Jean, the bi-colored red and yellow ones are gaillardias. The common name is Mexican blankets.
Thanks, Virginia --wonderful name.And yes, Suzanne, Georgetown is bursting with red poppies this time of year. And thanks everyone for your encouraging remarks!
