spring lingers in the wichita mountains

Wichita Mountains, Oklahoma
June 2014
Generous rains in May and much of this month of June have left the Wichita Mountains lush and verdant and prolifically carpeted in wildflowers and butterflies. She's dressed in her best finery and for me that means a twice-a-week visit to revel in the outrageous beauty until summer's hot blazing sun returns. It's just a matter of time. But for the moment I cherish these wet, languid days suffused with the yellows, reds and purples of prairie flowers.
