More Wildflowers from Kingman County, KS

Wild flowers of southwest Kansas



My sister-in-law, Kathy, sent me some more wildflower photos from Kingman County, Kansas (southwest of Wichita.) Thanks, Kathy, for sharing these!

It has been an unusually wet year in the part of Kansas where Dwight and Kathy live, and the wildflowers have bloomed in such profusion that's it's hard to imagine.

I hope you'll take time to click on the photos and look at the larger versions. They should load fairly quickly as most are under 150K in size. These little preview images don't really show how the flowers cover the landscape.

If you enjoyed these photos, you'll enjoy the Kansas wildflower photos I posted a couple of months ago, also from Kathy, my sister-in-law.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.
(Author unknown)

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
