My black Friday after Thanksgiving was actually a bright yellow Friday. I headed out to Circle B Bar Reserve with my friend Pam and her hubby for a walk through the park. For 3 hours we hiked the trails and the above was our view every step of the way. I've been told these are bur marigolds. Every year in the fall around mid November they bloom. The park is covered with them. It's a beautiful sight to see when walking the trails. It's still a little early for some of the winter birds to arrive but it's worth going to see the flowers. They should bloom until we get a good freeze sometime in January. I hope they are still there around the holidays because I hope to get out there to look for the white pelicans that migrate in for a short time. Keeping our fingers crossed, they should start arriving by Christmas.
