Photo Sunday

I haven’t had time for any blogging the last couple of weeks. Sometimes there’s a lot going on, and I’m lucky to get out for a hike at all. But I have been out doing some scouting around for wild flowers here and there, so I decided to just share a random selection of recent photos. I’ve had limited success so far in seeking out the most interesting local displays. Special kudos if you can recognize any of these locations. I won’t be back to my computer until Thursday as I am heading out to the DFW area for a few days on business.

Gorgeous Randy! Thanks for posting the names of the wildflowers - I've long loved them, and am now really trying to learn their names...

Thanks Greg. I'm really only a novice myself, but I do enjoy hunting for wildflowers. Sorry I took several days to see your comment. I've been away from my computer a lot lately.
