Wildflowers in George Bush Park in June

Sensitive Briar in field behind Barker Dam
Yellow Cone Flower are ubiquitous in the area
Even a mere stroll on Barker Dam offers a microcosm exemplifying the diversity or area wild flowers, not to mention a palette of magnificent colors.

Indian Paintbrush flowers are also common, but not as abundent
Purple Passion Flower grows as a vine, but also close to the ground
and in the grass

Flowers along the gravel road on top of Barker Dam

Bush of yellow flowers growing in gaps between stone slabs at Buffalo Bayou spillway
downstream from the Barker Dam gate
