Water main and gaillardias, Jax Beach
This field is lying fallow. It is interesting to see the first plants to invade. Gaillardias are an incredibly tough little flower. They are drought-proof as far as I can tell and willingly spread to any bare ground. They are members of the daisy family. they are also called blanket flowers due to their resemblance to native American blankets and their colors. These probably rode the wind from a garden where they had been planted.
