Time for goldeneye again

Goldeneye Flower Head 0029

The shrub called goldeneye, Viguiera dentata, traditionally blooms in the fall, though warming temperatures in the last few years have allowed it to extend its flowering season in Austin both earlier and later. This soft (because of low light and therefore relatively large f/5 aperture) view of a goldeneye flower head in my neighborhood is from October 3rd. In the weeks since then, I’ve seen lots of flowering goldeneye plants around Austin; they’re clearly having a good season.
