Wildflowers of the Sandhills

I went out in the pasture this morning and the wildflowers are everywhere. I guess 8 inches of rain in the last two weeks has really helped them grow. The purple spiderwort is my favorite and that seems to be the most abundant. I found a new one called Plains Beebalm. The prickly pear cactus are abundant too. They are a pale yellow color. The bright small yellow is greenthread. There are clumps of them. And the Yucca's are getting ready to bloom. I think the 90 degree weather next week will have them all opening.
