Prairie Wildflowers


While on a short drive the other evening, my husband and I came across a lovely field full of wildflowers just blooming their little hearts out.

I love the different names of the flowers. This one is Fleabane.


This is Purple Prairie Clover.

Here is a Black Eyed Susan.

Prairie Coneflower looks like it’s wearing a festive yellow skirt.

Here is Golden Crownbeard. Who comes up with these names?

Deptford Pink is really cute. The flowers only measure about a half inch across.

Last, but not least, is my favorite, Coreopsis.


It’s bright and cheerful,


it laughs at heat and drought and keeps on blooming,


and this cute little bug thought it was a great place to hang out and relax.


We’ve been having a generous amount of rain this year, so all the wildflowers are doing well.

Thanks for coming along, and hope you enjoyed your walk among the flowers.

Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    Wow amazing photos! You are so lucky to live where such beautiful flowers grow wild!

  5. I think Deptford Pink is slightly frightening, and looks a teensy bit like it’s going to eat me if I get to close. Also, your photos are mind-blowing, as always.

    I especially love that first photo. The only one I can figure out the name is fleabane. That one seems pretty obvious. I love the delicate leaves on the coreopsis. Mine is fighting for its life with the strawberries.

      Hi Julie,
      Better wear some bug repellent before running through the field- this is chigger season. :o)

    I’m new here, but right off the bat, I’m amazed he stopped to let you take pictures!

    You must have a great one there!

      Hi Pinkie,
      Thanks for dropping by. Harland is a photographer, so often he’s the one doing the stopping and pic taking, and I just tag along and take my own pics. But he IS a great one too!
      Thank you,
