There’s those huge sunflowers you see occasionally, the ones planted by folks in their yards or fields. While they are exceptional, I’m also partial to the smaller wildflowers that adorn many parts of our Blackland Prairie. Some farmers I’ve talked to aren’t really fans of the wild ones, feeling they encroach on their planting areas. The ones I’ve seen through the years, however, appear to nicely reside in areas near fields, but not in them. As was the case with these photographed this week near Bartlett, Texas. These smaller ones, like our bluebonnets, are weeds, but they add a nice dash of color to our rural landscape.
