I think it has found a place in my garden plans for next year.
This little flower growing on the side of the road is almost invisible. Its total width is about 1/4 of an inch. The grass runners all around it look like ropes. But it was just too pretty to pass by. I think it is Texas Bindweed.
These lite purple beauties I believe are Purple Bindweed. It had a white spiral pistil, which was offset by a deep purple center. They seem to be growing wild in everyone's yard.
The Evening Primrose grows everywhere!
These I believe are called Indian Blanket. They have beautiful red-yellow petals; and when they all fall off, they are still fantastic with their little prickly globes. Fields and fields of these are everywhere you look.
The two below are called Mexican Hat. The wind was blowing so hard the morning I took these pictures that I did not think that any of these would actually come out. They are so distinctive that you can spot them driving down the road.
These are called Silver-Leaf Nightshade. They are absolutely beautiful, but poisonous.
Not really sure what this one is. It caught my eye because it looked so fragile. Seems to be very similar Feverfew.
These microscopic flowers are called Frog Fruit. How cute is that! They are millimeters in size, but so unique. My mom thought I was crazy for taking pictures of weeds.
It just goes to show .....one man's weeds is another man's wild flowers!
...and these colorful Lantana were right in the middle of everything.
So much for my first foray into the wilds of Texas...lol!
Thanks for stopping by.
