Texas wildflowers – Castilleja indivisa Engelm

I always look forward to spring in the Texas hill country.  Bluebonnets, Gaillardia, primroses, paintbrushes and so many more.  As we were driving along a rural road I spotted a yellow flower standing among hundreds of Scarlet Paintbrushes.  It was a first for me.  I had to go back and see if it was actually a yellow variation of the flower.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was and that there were several scattered throughout the area.
