Southeastern Oklahoma is blooming with color by the beginning of the third week of the month. That's when my Darlin' and I visit GlenMar Ranch in the little town of Caddo, OK.
My friend the Colonel (pronounce that KerNel if you're not a military type) spends many hours during this period of spring behind the lens of his camera.
He's documented many of the wildflowers that color the creek bottoms and pastures. Most of them are unidentified, since one person's wildflower is another person's weed.
Most ranchers wouldn't care. The colonel, though, is an artist at heart, in my humble opinion. You won't see the flower in the pasture, but it's there. The single blossom is only about a quarter of an inch in diameter.
It's amazing what you'll find when you stop to look at what's all around you.
