Wildflower of the Year (2022) According to Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

This year, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center has named blanketflower, or firewheel, its wildflower of the year. I commend this flower too. It bursts into glorious color (mostly reds and yellows) over a long period of spring and early summer across much of the United States. In Texas it can often be found covering large sections of open fields alongside bluebonnets.

I snapped several photos of blanketflowers when I visited the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center a few years ago. To celebrate it being named wildflower of the year I created a couple of photographic art versions of one of the images. You can click on them for a larger view. Out of curiosity, which version do you like better?
