Blending in With the Blossoms on a Wildflower Drive

Last night, I went out in search of summer flowers. Having been disappointed at a thunderstorm that dumped rain on the spring blooms a few weeks ago and melted them, I was excited to see that the summer seasonal blossoms were coming into full bloom!

Have you ever taken a drive just to view the scenery? I do that all time living on the alien landscape of the Palouse and love cruising over rolling hills and feeling the sun on my body. This time, I went out on a “Wildflower Drive” and even wore an awesome Van Gogh-style floral print shirt to blend in!

The first flowers we encountered were on the Sweetbriar bush! I’ve foraged for Sweetbriar rose hips before and turned the fruit into a delicious jam, but it was nice to see the bright pink flowers in season, being pollinated to turn into the rose hips I so love in Fall.

Wearing a floral print shirt from Yizzam, the bees seemed to think I was a part of the plant! I even saw a small little butterfly zoom toward me; they were attracted to the print! I’m obsessed with prints and bright colors so this was perfect!

Flowers turn into seeds and it looks like we just missed the giant desert dandelions! I bet these yellow flowers must have been huge to produce these awesomely enormous dandelion puffs.

I took some time and blew away the dandelion seeds, making a wish as I did!

Have you ever been on a “Wildflower Drive?” Summer is the perfect time!
