Wildflowers in bloom

5 04 2010

Over the weekend I noticed all of the wildflowers along the highway. They were all different colors and sizes, but they were all beautiful.

When I saw them I wondered why they were there.  I found out that in 1934, the highway department stopped mowing the grass around the highways so the native wildflowers could grow. Now each year they plant over 30,000 seeds of all different kinds of wildflowers.

If you go on a road trip this spring or a long drive, make sure you look out for these flowers.
