Just wanted to share wildflower photos I took at Trophy Club Park (on the shores of Lake Grapevine) and Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano.  We were just at Trophy Club Park yesterday, so the flowers I spotted are very recent.  There were many large patches of horsemint, yellow coneflowers, a pink flower I have not seen before, and a few remaining firewheels.  I also photographed pink thistle,  white dasies and a yellow flower I am not familiar with.  We went to Arbor Hills Nature Preserve three weeks ago, but I went in June last year and saw many of the same flowers.  I apologize for not posting a report earlier, but we were busy with our California vacation.  We saw firewheels, verbena, thistle, coneflowers, horsemint, silver leaf night shade, basketflowers, prairie bishop and yellow daisies.  I have also included a few pictures of flowers I have found in my area in the neighborhood parks and wetlands.  I have enjoyed seeing different flowers in these parks all spring and some are new to me.  I have included a link to some photos.

Hi Gayle!

Thanks for sharing those great wildflower photos! It is awesome to know there are places within the DFW area where there were some safe havens for wildflowers!
