Beautiful beauty

Oh, everything is blooming so wonderfully right now! Yellows, golds, purples and some orange, too...

Maximilian sunflowers
Native lantanas
Maximilian sunflowers and cowpen daisies
Broomweed (and agarita leaves)
Osage orange fruit
Fall asters
Note to myself: a mountain laurel seedling that I rescued from a grocery store flower bed in Burnet in August.
Another note: a potted mountain laurel given to us by Tim H. I probably killed it. James put it in the ground a few weeks ago. The stem's still green!
My new favorite native: climbing snapdragon vine
Black dalea
'New Gold' lantana
James planted penta and marigolds in this old log.
Wood sorrel
'Coral Nymph' coccinea
'Eyelash' salvia and mountain sage

Everything looks so pretty. My Eyelash salvia is blooming as well. The hummingbirds love it. Wish I could find a snapdragon vine. Would love to add it to my garden.

It's on the species list for the native plant sale at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center this weekend.

The Native Plant nursery in Medina also has the snapdragon vines - in purple as well as white. Look for entrance to the nursery right across from Love Orchard's tree farm on the main road through Medina. It's kind of hard to find, but the orchard makes it easy.
I love the wood sorrel. One whole side of my yard "lawn" is blooming in this now.

I love the Snapdragon Vines-reminds me of my Mom having Morning Glories growing when I was little.

Thanks for the heads up about getting them at Medina-how fast do these grow?

The photos are just fabulous as always Sheryl.

Thanks for teaching us about our Native Texas Plants! Still a lot to learn. Martha
