I have to admit that I never really noticed these flowers until a few years ago when I was riding with a friend, and she mentioned that these wildflowers always bloom at the end of the rainy season.
The yellow and orange wildflowers start blooming in the middle of August, which is actually the heart of the rainy season. They continue to bloom until sometime in October. They really beautify the rocky hills around Bezer Home.
If you take a good look at the hillside, you can see the yellow hues from the wildflowers.
A type of sunflower.
A dainty little yellow star.
The kids enjoyed stopping to pick wildflowers today on our way from Bezer Home to our home. When we got home, David asked for a vase and got to work arranging the flowers.
These vibrant red flowers congregate in ditches and low-lying swampy areas.
And these orange blossoms are some of the most unique I've ever seen. Notice their oblong finger-like shape.
Whenever I see the poinsettia plant, I feel like Christmas is just around the corner. The poinsettias will continue blooming all the way through December.
The sky reminded us that we're still in the rainy season, although we didn't actually have any rain today.
