The hubby and I drove south this weekend for what was supposed to be a fun blow-out for our good friend’s 50th birthday. Through circumstances beyond our control, the hubby was not able to attend (and thus was not able to do light-up hula hooping by the hotel pool at 1:30 a.m.), but that’s not the story I want to tell today.
Today’s story is about the amazing wildflowers that are blooming along the roadsides right now. Whenever I’m traveling in a car, I watch the sides of the road and the median to catch glimpses of wildflowers. It’s not possible, or advisable, to take photos of them as we zip along at highway speeds, especially when I’m driving, so I’ve found representative photos of what I saw this weekend. I’ve gotten pretty good at high speed plant ID, but there were a couple I’m not 100% sure of
What’s blooming wherever you are?
