Bluebonnet Inflorescence Forming 4750

In the last post you saw a group of people taking pictures of a baby in a colony of bluebonnets, Lupinus texensis. Now here’s a close look at how an individual bluebonnet inflorescence comes into being. Notice that there’s barely a trace of blue-violet in this early stage and that the operative word is soft.

This picture is from March 24th in the Barton Creek Greenbelt.
