Treasure in the street

Thymophylla pentachaeta
The bright  yellow orange caught my eye. I leaned down for a closer look. A sweet wildflower! Right on the edge of our street! I set a few rocks by it as a marker. Then I thumbed through Marshall Enquist's Wildflowers of the Texas Hill Country–parralena. But the Wildflower Center lists the common name as dogweed (Thymophylla pentachaeta). Either way, the plant is dainty and fern-like. I love it. Treasure in the street!
