What do you miss about summer?
One of the things I love about living in Northwest Arkansas is that we get a little of everything with the four seasons. Right now we're at that kind of in-between stage. Autumn was gorgeous, but the winds have blown in. The leaves are brown and wet, and the lovely things about winter are a while away. I guess these in-between weeks make us appreciate the best each season has to offer.
During this brown stage, I've been missing the wildflowers.
Mount Magazine State Park is the place to go in June if you love wildflowers and butterflies. On a short stroll along the trail, you can see butterflies of all colors on wildflowers of even more colors.
A little research helped me discover that this wildflower is a Gaillardia. (I think!) I would have just called it a red and yellow daisy! Whatever they're called, they're lovely.
