Prairie Agalinis Flower 5937

Two days ago I went on my first nature photo outing of the new month: from Austin’s northern suburb of Cedar Park comes this prairie agalinis flower, Agalinis heterophylla, a sure sign of September in central Texas.

You may have noticed that many recently posted photographs here have been from July or early August. There are more to come from that period because even after skipping over plenty of things from previous months I’m still backlogged. (Better an embarrassment of riches than a poverty of pictures, right?) In any case, while I keep mining the past, I thought I’d slip in this current photograph as a herald of autumn, despite the fact that a few hours after I took this picture on Wednesday the temperature got up to around 101°F, or 38°C.
