Texas highways and roadsides have now been adorned with different kinds of blooming gorgeous wildflowers. In our area, the prevalent ones are the Buttercups, or the Pink Evening Primroses (Oenothera speciosa), which bloom from February to July.

Pink Evening Primroses grow in certain region that encompasses Missouri down to Northeast Mexico. ‘Northern species’ open their flowers in the evening, and close them in the morning, while ‘southern species’ open their flowers in the morning and close them in the evening. A small colony of these wildflowers was growing right here in my own backyard.
