Some Range Wildflowers
I haven't been able to identify these. All the wildflower sites tell me it's a bluet, but the flower is definitely shaped differently. It's got that little whorl to it. It also seems like it might be bigger than a bluet, but I'm not sure how big the bluets are supposed to be. I like these little flowers, but I think the vines are growing up under our siding, so much if not all of it will have to go. You know, when we get around to it.
Above and below you can see some of our lovely Dame's Rocket. It's a wildflower that (I think) was originally planted purposely in a few places here on the Range but has spread a bit randomly. I think it's beautiful and plan to transplant it to some more appropriate places. If we have time.
Last, but not least, an evening primrose. These are even more plentiful in our neighbor's yard and absolutely striking when they're all open and facing the sunset in the evenings.
