And yet, there are bluebonnets blooming here and there in the hay field. These are spring flowers so they must know something Old Man Winter does not. I wonder if they will bloom again in the spring?
Liatris usually blooms in fall, but this one decided to wait until winter. Maybe the last mowing altered its growing schedule.
This buckthorn was near our campsite at Caprock Canyons State Park in Briscoe County, Texas. I know, it's not a wildflower, or even a bloom. But I thought it was interesting. I wouldn't want it in my field, but it fits perfectly on the caprock.
And last is another not quite bloom. I don't know what it is either. If you have any idea, let me know. It was also at Caprock Canyons State Park and I was intrigued. So delicate in a harsh environment.
