A picture from farther back
Yesterday’s post focused on an individual bluebonnet, Lupinus texensis, so I thought I should balance that with a view showing the way this wildflower can form large (and fragrant, which I can’t show) colonies. The prominently vertical plants coming up in the bluebonnet colony are poverty weed, Baccharis neglecta. The trees beyond them on the ridge are mostly Ashe junipers, Juniperus ashei. Above the trees, filling half the frame, are the wispy clouds that dictated the photograph’s vertical format (although I did horizontal takes too).
