My Mexican Hats are Back

With their high rounded crowns
they resemble the sombrero of Mexico
On tall stalks they blow and bend with the wind.
The red and yellow make for a unique show

It is a wildflower of the southwest.
Blooming in late May and beyond.
In my neighborhood they are in the
drainage ditches and common areas
surrounding the homes and golf courses

It is a tough and colorful plant.

Although wild, seeds can be bought.
However I think I will enjoy them in the wild.
