Another colorful thing I saw at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center on the overcast and wet morning of December 6th was this opening flower head of a prairie fleabane daisy, Erigeron modestus, beyond which you can make out the leftover receptacles of two spent seed heads. If you’d like a reminder of a stage between the fresh and the forlorn, you can fly back to a post from close to a year ago.
