Nothing says spring like a field of wildflowers. Colorful native plants offer a cheerful view on an otherwise drab day with gusty winds and rain on Friday. The flowers are growing just inside the entrance gate at the Largo Central Park Nature Preserve, a 31-acre nature park with trails and gardens.
