I found this wildflower in the Ponca Wilderness Area on the buffalo national river in Arkansas. I realized it’s the same flower we have in our garden at home with the exception that it’s red instead of yellow. I don’t know the name of the flower. Can anyone ID it and is it a common wildflower in Arkansas?

Excellent fields of wildflowers at the Meadow View Nature Area just west of Ennis, Texas. At the crossroad of 287 and 34 in Ennis, Texas, take 34 West - towards Italy, Texas. This is also known as W. Lake bardwell Drive. You will go only about a mile, turn right on Laneview Drive. The turn was marked with a bluebonnet trail sign. Narrow road - dead ends in about 1/2 mile, turn left to the Meadow View Nature Area. This area has been specifically set aside for viewing flowers.

Superb flowers. The best I have seen this year. I was there last Thursday. If you can get there this week, should still be some good viewing.
Check the Ennis Bluebonnet Festival page to make sure the Meadow View area is still open before you go. There are set hours for this location. You can can call or e-mail the folks in Ennis.https://www.visitennis.org/bluebonnetfestival.htm

Plenty of flowers going up 281 from San Antonio. Found this flower patch in the median of 281 and 311, north side of Spring Branch. You can see people stopping and taking lots of pictures here. There's also a cafe and shops for those who prefer the indoors.

Taken on 3/29/18 off Hwy 174 (Brushy Creek Road), between Brushy Creek Park and Champion Park in Cedar Creek. This is a ranch on the side of the road; there is a spot to pull over, completely off the pavement where you can take pictures of the old truck. There is a fence there, so please respect the residents' privacy.

Several groups of tall Indian Paintbrush...small patches south of the intersection and large patches North of the intersection toward Benbrook (East side of road)...I can't find the exact spices anywhere...they are very tall...about 2 1/2 to 3 feet tall with a long bloom and the plant is mostly a single stalk full of feather-like leaves that are larger closer to the ground...I just entered Teas verity???
