Good Fences #21

A look back to May along our driveway. The Firewheels (aka Indian Blankets) were in full bloom, then.
 And Jake, one of the mini-mules from next door, was happy to pose on another day, too.

Those are gorgeous wildflowers! Mr. Mini looks like he'd rather be on the other side. :-)

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I love seeing the fire wheels....they're so pretty.

EG CameraGirl said...

The common name of those flowers here north of Toronto is "blanket flower? and some of my friends refer to them as Gaillardia. I guess that's because they are normally not wild here so we have to purchase them as seeds or young plants. :)

orchid Miyako said...

Love the huge area with "firewheels, aka Indian Blankets", Jake and fence♡♡♡

We have firewheels here, but in small groups, not such profusion when together. Whatever, they're a feast for the eyes!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Jake? From State Farm? The one who sounds hideous at 3AM? (I guess I watch too much TV). Love those Indian Blankets!

Montanagirl said...

I really like these! The third shot is my fave, with Mr. Mini-Mule peeking through and the Fire Wheels really add to the photo too.

DJan said...

That last picture is my favorite, too. The light behind the flowers is perfect, and the mule is cute, too. :-)

William Kendall said...

Pretty flowers, and Jake has a stoic quality to him.

Rose said...

I like them all....I had to read to find out what Jake was.

messymimi said...

How pretty! Jake looks good among the flowers.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Very pretty! And when we were traveling we were surprised how many pastures with cows had a donkey or two as well. Thanks for the party! Hugs!

georgettesullins said...

Hoe nice to have those pretty blanket flowers grow in such profusion.

Ms. A said...

I love all the Indian Blankets!

Andrea Priebe said...

I am wondering how early I would have to get up to get to be one of at least the first ten entries or even comments ... good grief:)

I love your Firewheels ... Spring (when you have one) is so nice and now that we are headed full speed into fall, I look at Spring longingly. And who couldn't love Jake looking furtively at the Firewheels and licking his chops, no doubt. Cute, Theresa ...

Beautiful flowers.

Beautiful flowers.

pattisjarrett said...

I love seeing those flowers en masse. So pretty. Mine didn't come back this year. I can't blame them, I didn't like the cold much, either. Nice of your neighbor to pose, too.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Those Firewheels are so cheery!

Jeevan said...

Beautiful capture... the fence make a beautiful frame for the Jack :) Colorful images!

DeniseinVA said...

Lovely fence scenes. The mule is a cute focus point and I think the wild flowers are beautiful!

Mary Hone said...

I love that!

Linda said...

Lovely scenes! I was glad to see the comment saying these are Gaillardia because I've seen those for sale. Maybe I should grow them next year.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

Beautiful blanket of flowers! I wonder whether that was an old gate that has been blocked for a long time, judging by the amount of growth in front of it.

Melissa said...

Such a pretty scene. It's a beautiful fence and the flowers are so pretty too. And I especially like Jake photo -bombing the scene :)

LV said...

Even the animals appreciate the beauty of nature.

Stephanie Faris said...

So pretty! Yep, the mule was just trying to get into that picture, wasn't he?!

bailey-road.com said...

Wonderful shots. The wildflowers are so pretty. I like Jake too!

MarkD60 said...

At first, I thought it was a bear in the last photo. I still can't tell if it's a cow or a horse.

Mandy Southgate said...

Cutest mule ever! And those flowers are (were?) just gorgeous.

don said...

It's good to see the colorful flowers. They add much to the fence portion.

Felicia said...

beautiful. cute little jack

ellen b. said...

What a beautiful blanket of flowers along the fence. Jake makes a great addition to the scene!

Sylvia K said...

Lovely, colorful flowers and a great fence for the day!!

sharon said...

The pastures of farm life, fences to keep the cows out of the hay, to keep the horses and cows from running all over creation. A farm does not exist without its fences to establish it's boundaries.

Stephanie said...

I love the landscape shots with your fencing and the blooms are gorgeous.

Indrani said...

Great captures. Love the flowers in the foreground.

Chandra said...

I see lots of my friends in the picture. You must have quite the driveway.
Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :)

Stephen Hayes said...

What a beautiful day in May. I can almost hear the breeze and smell the grass.

S. J. Qualls said...

Your wildflowers are quite plentiful! (and colorful)

nookworm said...

I love the Indian Blanket Flowers! Saw some once in SC in the sand dunes.

Lovely green landscapes & beautiful quaint crimson wild flowers.

Julia said...

I think that Jake like to have his picture taken with the pretty flowers. I'd like to pick some for a bouquet.
Hugs,
JB

Christa atCedarmereFarm said...

Firewheels are such happy looking flowers. I have not heard of these flowers being called Firewheels before. I think this is a more descriptive name for them than Idian Blankets. Jake is adorable.

Łucja-Maria said...

Gate looks very romantic.
Delight flowers in the meadow.
Have a nice weekend.

Debby Ray said...

Hi Tex...these photos are just gorgeous! What spectacular views of your lovely driveway! Thanks for hosting, as always!

bj said...

I didn't get to do a fence post with you this week. :(
I, instead, linked with the Heart party and now, she hasn't opened it. Don't know if she is having it or not. Bummer...
I am about to get tired of linking...so many not there anymore and no warning.

I love the flowers. Their warm tones blend so well with the dry grass and fence post. I think they are Gaillaradias. I have those in my garden, too.

I had fire wheels all in the easement of the city house for years. Haven't got around to getting them established out here but I do miss them.
