Firewheels are blooming like crazy around Llano.  Some of the best displays of this wildflower I’ve ever seen.  There are abundant massive displays on Hwy 71 from Llano (Hwy 29) to Pontotoc and even all the way to Brady. Also blooming are coreopsis, lazy daisies, Engelmann daisies and prickly poppies. Hwy 16 from Llano to Cherokee is also very good.
