These lupines were growing in a field and not near any houses. I think they must have escaped from a garden long ago and have spread
The wild Phlox is everywhere - on a warm day if we are driving slowly down country roads we can smell the lovely scent
And California Poppies - I miss the hillsides completely covered in CA Poppies - from when we lived in California
Wild Irises line the roads - they too may have escaped from gardens - or been carried to the fields by mice and moles
Foxgloves - pinks and whites - grow abundantly wild on hillsides and roads
And along fences
Ox-Eye Daisies are everywhere this time of the year - sometimes there are so many that the hillsides are white like snow.
Ox-eye Daisies are smaller than Shasta Daisies. I have gathered seeds to plant them in my garden and they love to self seed once they are established in an area.
Next come the Sweet Peas and the Wild Roses
