And the colorful wildflowers keep coming!

The early flowering "Showy Peavine" has serrated leaves and purple flowers.

This is one of the first purple flowers you see in the spring. The flowers remind me of a snapdragon’s shape.

We found an entire spot full of showy peavine flowers.  Don't eat- the plants can be toxic if consumed in large amounts and cause your limbs to go limp.

ReeRee and I found a large swath of showy pea vines, so we stopped to pick a few. The showy pea vines are low growing and are knee high to a toddler.
