On my Merry Month of May post [which has the fence image] I shared a 'fire wheel' flower that was PINK!! I'd never seen a pink one.

Pretty fence line...with all the green.

messymimi said...

With that many flowers blooming along it, i don't blame you for wanting to share it!

I've seen those on trips but never knew the name, love the name Firewheels.

EG CameraGirl said...

It's a particularly lovely fence line with those firewheels!

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; Oh, Firewheels♪ I love the reddish orange and yellow color which might be the origin of the name☆☆☆ Finished teaching and don't know if I'll have energy to visit others p:-)
Thank you SO much for hosting.

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Sandra said...

I always love to see your wild flowers and am glad to see you are not flooded like so much of Texas is.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

In New Mexico we called them Indian Blanket flowers. They did cover the ground like a blanket.

Jeevan said...

beautiful capture and neat present in fence!

DJan said...

You can never have too many Firewheels or Whistlers in my opinion. :-)

Paula said...

Very pretty. We saw lots of these yesterday but didn't get to stop and take pictures since we were with someone else.

Linda Kay said...

A simple fence, but beautiful flowers.

Jo said...

Hi Teresa. Beautiful firewheels behind the fence. Have a great day. Jo

Karen S. said...

They are always a welcome sight! Have a wonderful day!

Montanagirl said...

These are such a pretty flower!

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

ahhhh...I need a Sunday Safari inland this week. We had about 5 inches of rain Tuesday night in about two hours. That should excite the wild flowers into crazy bloom

Ramona said...

You can that photo ANYtime, its Beautiful.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Very pretty-they really are gorgeous flowers, and against all that green! We had sunshine all day long yesterday..I'm in shock.

Tanya Breese said...

such pretty scenery!

Gail said...

What fences? I'm too busy enjoying the flowers.

joeh said...

It must be a lot of work planting those every fall, but worth it in the spring.

Kathy said...

I love these little wheels of color! With all our cloudy days recently they offer a bit of sunshine!

ThreeOldKeys said...

How'd you get 'em to bloom in a zigzag line ...?
: )
I like how you enjoy your surroundings so much ... thanks for sharing with us all.

Ileana said...

Beautiful wildflowers!

Carola Bartz said...

The firewheels are beautiful and really pop on a cloudy day. I wouldn't have been able to resist taking pictures of them either. What a lovely display of color by the driveway.

ladyfi said...

oh - so very pretty!

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Just wonderful! The flowers are perfect for a plain fence.

Great patterns from those firewheels!

Birdman said...

It looked good before. It still does. Reprise is very good for the soul. Like the name 'firewheels'. hothothothot.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Nothing lovelier than wild flowers along a fence line! That flower looks like what we know as Indian Blanket. Maybe a different name for the same thing, or at least they are close relatives. Some day I will find a fence again!

Back In Thyme Primitives said...

I love the pictures of the flowers along the fence. Thanks for sharing the pictures and hosting such an awesome weekly event.

Penelope Postcards said...

So nice to see splashes of color in the green!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Next time I am in Texas I might steal some Firewheels to bring home and see if they will grow here. I'm sure that will be breaking some sort of law. Good!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

So, we now have numerous firewheels in the garden. It would cost a fortune to replicate your view :-o

Marit Sønstebø said...

The Firewheels are so beautiful!

Sally said...

You can't post too many wildflowers for me. I love them! :)

I love the contrast between the barb wire fencing and the bright colour of the flowers! and how the flowers grow straight tall, while the fence is horizontal. great image.
