Wildflower updates

Texas yellowstar
Lindheimera texana

Alright, time to visit the Meadow and figure out what we've got blooming over there right now. Lots of pretty flowers.........

Texas yellowstar
Lindheimera texana

One of our very own Texas bluebonnets!

Texas stork's-bill
Erodium texanum
(I figured it out!)

A damselfly that happened by....

Glandularia bipinnatifida var. bipinnatifida
(I thought the two hues of purple were extra pretty.)

Texas vervain
Verbena halei

Wright's skullcap
Scuterllaria wrightii
(Thank you, Mary, for the identification!!)

Medicago polymorpha
I used to love this stuff as a kid. Until Dad had us help him roll it up like carpet to get it out of our yard in Corpus Christi. Now I hate it as much as he did. It's taking over the Meadow!!!
