The goldeneye was pretty good again this year

Goldeneye Flowering Near Bull Creek Cliff 7461

The goldeneye (Viguiera dentata) in Austin was excellent in the autumn of 2013, and it was pretty good again this fall. In the previous post you saw a closeup of a bud, but now pull back for a glorious goldeneye colony as it looked on October 16th in the panhandle of St. Edward’s Park in northwest Austin. The limestone cliff in the background was worn away over æons by water rushing through Bull Creek, as it regularly still does after a heavy rain.
