A different B & B

Bluebonnet Colony by Butterweed Colony 7908

This time the B & B of the title are bluebonnets, Lupinus texensis, and butterweed, Packera tampicana. On the afternoon of April 4th, when I was driving northbound on US 183 and nearing the southernmost reaches of Austin, I saw these two adjacent colonies in a field at the intersection with Von Quintus Rd. (the street sign said Von Qunitus Rd.). The violet-colored flowers that you can make out in a few places among the bluebonnets are prairie verbenas, Glandularia bipinnatifida.


I’m out of town for a few days. Feel free to leave comments, but it may take me a while to answer them.
