Sanborn Park Wildflowers

flowers

The Mule's Ears are in bloom! Here's a whole field full of them.

While exploring side roads along Sanborn Park Road, Forest Road 530, I chanced upon many wildflowers. Here are some samples.

I couldn't resist asking this guy if I could take his picture standing in the purple wildflowers. He declined to take my picture.

Here's an interesting little flower. Each of those tightly folded orange things is about an inch to an inch and a half long. Many were not yet open.

Here's one of the orange flowers that has opened. What a delicate little thing! The opening is about the size of a dime.

roses

Technically along Dave Wood Road rather than Sanborn Park, here are some wild roses, a light shade of pink.
