According to a recent article in The Wichita Eagle, this has been an unusually good year for wildflowers due to the long cold winter and then immediate summer-like (hot!) weather. We seem to have skipped spring altogether, but I won't complain since the flowers have been so beautiful and prolific this year. Here's what's been blooming around our house this past week or so:

Western Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)


Black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta)

Daisy Fleabane (Erigeron strigosus)

Buffalo Bur (AKA 'Kansas Thistle') (Solanum rostratum)

Poison Hemlock (Conium maculatum)?

Flower-of-an-hour (AKA 'Venice Mallow') (Hibiscus trionum)

Goat's Beard (AKA 'Western Salsify') (Tragopogon dubius)

Meadow Flax (AKA 'Norton's Flax') (Linum pratense)
