The wild profusion of colorful flowers is gone from the fields. A non-scientific and cursory survey taken this morning of both the east and west pastures revealed that while the coreopsis is in its lovely and abundant prime, there is only a smattering of Wild Petunias (which grow low to the ground so aren't exactly ostentatious), and pink Prairie Rose Gentians. There are spots of wild carrot and two clusters of Orange Milkweed. There's not even a stray Black-eyed Susan.
May and June are the clear stand-outs for wildflowers. Soon my FLOWER pages will be empty of blooms.
