Not in isolation

The last view looked cloudward at a dense stand of Euphorbia marginata, known picturesquely as snow-on-the-mountain because it’s found in the Texas Hill Country, among other places. But plants don’t grow in isolation, and here’s a slightly angled-down view to make that point. The flowers sunnying the ground are yellow bitterweed, Helenium amarum var. amarum, making a first appearance in these pages. Like the previous photograph, I took this one on August 30 on an undeveloped lot between two industrial buildings in Cedar Park, a suburb just north of Austin.
