In honor of the First Day of Spring, I thought I would return to posting my thread of America’s Wildflowers on the Road in a Truck Camper. The last time we did this was more than 2 years ago so it is long overdue. At least for those of us that search out and enjoy the wildflowers in this grand country we live in.

Hopefully many of you will find this as a challenge to post here too! Your discoveries and your favorite flowers you see and enjoy while traveling in your truck Campers. The rules? There is only one, please keep the flowers you post here ones that are not in a yard or any formal flower garden. Yes, a wildflower bed would be fine, but not one you found in the flower section of the Home Depot.

Ahh, yes, for those two that mentioned that this was not TC content, before, understand that we are enjoying these wildflowers as much as you enjoy the museums, the fishing pictures, boat pictures and an occasional horse shows. Because I enjoy all those, as well.

Please post your favorite Wildflower pictures here too!!!

But, for Truck Camper content, I will open with one I captured on a past photography hunt, with a good buddy that brought his own camera along, too.

Those that know me know that I have hundreds of Wildflowers to post. But, how about some of you post some of your favorite wildflower photos too. Just a change in how we post here. Like my previous wildflowers thread, surprise me!

I am sure many of the post will include TCs and/or would have been difficult to see in a different RV type. I think it is fantastic to see a TC in a fiend of flowers.

Brian, these are absolutely some of the most gorgeous photos of the various wildflowers that can be seen in this country of ours. I especially enjoyed your shot of the truck camper amongst all of those flowers. Thanks again Brian for this really made my day.

Thanks for sharing.

The first day of Spring in south central Pennsylvania is giving us snow.

I'm glad I don't live farther north.

Sometimes you have to notice the small stuff. 22 shell casing included for scale. Flowers - maybe Bigelow's monkey flower. Location: Short Canyon, off Hwy 395 near Ridgecrest, CA.

.22 shell casing? When Bryan said he has been shooting flowers I think you might have got the wrong idea [emoticon]


Bryan - wonderful pictures as usual.

Beautiful pictures! My wildflower posts will have to wait a bit. Even thought it is the first day of spring, here in Maine we still have several feet of snow on the ground and more coming this weekend.

Steve.

Thanks for posting your flower picture Tiger! Do you have anymore?

I hope more will share here. Hints to; Silversand and Goingthisaway .

Yes, Steve. Words can and do KILL. I sent a message to one of my AP Photographer friends when he was sharing about his upcoming retirement. I ended up with a final comment of;

Keep on Shooting Fritz!!

Well, he wrote back quickly and reminded me that for lack of good punctuation someone could die. Yep, I forgot a comma.

Many of these flowers are really small. Like the below photo I captured of a Pink Clover Trifolium pretense blossom. It is only the size of my thumb nail.

Mark's a funny looking wildflower!

All of my pictures are from Mojave National Preserve. First week in April I'll be hiking in MNP again. Locally I noticed the cactus buds getting fat and the globe mallow just starting to pop. There is something special about desert flowering shrubs and flowers that have such a struggle to survive and can produce beauty at the same time.

Is it Happy or Merry Spring??
