  2. Very little is more dramatic than red and black. This is a great reminder that spring isn’t all about pastels.

  4. That one has beautiful color. I wish I could see red in nature easier but colorblindness gets in the way. I walk right by our cardinal flowers (and cardinals) and never see them. Chances are I’d do the same with this beauty.

    • Yes, you would miss this one then. Despite having a flower stem a foot tall, it is a rather small flower and would probably look like some kind of grass.

  5. Great shot of this flower, Terry. Is this the first red wildflower you’ve shared with us? My memory is failing badly these days.

    • It’s the second. Awhile back the Scarlet Indian Paintbrush began to bloom. That brings up something interesting. These are the only two really red wildflowers in this area. There is a red columbine native to this general area but I have never come across one.

  7. I’d rather have that than 4th of July fireworks (which I don’t care for at all, anymore).

    • I’m captivated by the elegance of many of the wild blossoms, this one especially.
