Astragalus Flowers 1008

An even brighter wildflower that I found coming up on March 4th, a year and a half after the Bastrop County Complex Fire of 2011, was fringed puccoon, Lithospermum incisum. Here’s a partly shadowy view of it, with plenty of symbolic black in the lower portion of the photograph.
