Here are two of my favorite wild flowers. They love to grow where nothing else will. Ya gotta be careful out hiking around. Ya never know when you might run into a rattle snake! YIKES!
This is called a Blazing Star. I like to call it a pin less corsage. Its not sticky to the touch, but you can pick one and it will stick to your shirt, hair, not a good idea! or anywhere. They grow in big clumps. Such a different flower.
This is a Common Sunflower. It likes to grow on the side of the dirt road.
Ole mama keeping cool in the shade of basalt rocks. I am sure she has little ones close by.
One of my favorite little elusive creatures. The Burrowing Owl.
