Engelmann Daisy Flower Heads 5307

Two days ago I proclaimed that spring has come to Austin. I said it silently to myself because I didn’t want to startle any of the cyclists who kept passing close by in the bike lane on Great Northern Blvd., along which several suddenly flowering spring species included these Engelmann daisies, Engelmannia peristenia. I wonder if the brisk breeze accounted for the wrinkling in so many of the ray flowers.
