Several years of drought plunged Panhandle wildflowers into dormancy, but this year’s rains have nourished the resilient plants that are now blooming with fireworks of colors. The land between Dumas and Amarillo, rolling between river breaks and mesas, is alive again. Wildflower enthusiasts can check out the links below to help identify the many flowers that are blooming. Be sure to check out the wildflower pics in the gallery on the right that were taken south of Dumas.
